Yellowstone Volcano Observatory established

14 May, 2001

The University of Utah, the United States Geological  Survey and Yellowstone National Park establish the fifth volcano observatory in the United States. Instead of a building, scientists will use existing facilities and equipment at the park, as well as at the University of Utah and in USGS offices in California and Washington State, to monitor real-time earthquake and ground deformation.
