Yellowstone volcano: Eruption can go off any time and 'will happen again' expert warns | Science | News 46

“In time, biota tends to naturally recover from such environmental catastrophes, but burgeoning human populations and infrastructures would be hugely adversely affected.”

The expert proceeded to offer some reassurance to anybody living near Yellowstone.

He explained Yellowstone is constantly monitored by the US Geological Survey (USGS), meaning an enormous eruption would hopefully be pre-empted.

He added: “Should a large explosive eruption occur at Yellowstone, there would probably be some warning, because precursory activity (ground deformation, earthquakes, gas release) tends to escalate before a large magmatic eruption.

“The volcano is being monitored.”
