Detailed Description

A University of Utah- Swiss post doctoral fellow is lugging a seismometer barrel to a new seismograph station being installed near Old Faithful, Yellowstone National Park. The Yellowstone seismic network (YSN) is operated cooperatively by University of Utah, the U.S. Geological Survey's Volcano Hazards program, and the National Park Service. The network covers the seismically and volcanically active Yellowstone National Park and surrounding area. It is designed for the purpose of monitoring volcano and geyser-related earthquake activity and for studying the subsurface processes of Yellowstone.
