Montana State University researchers have discovered a rare oasis of life in the midst of hundreds of geothermal vents at the bottom of Yellowstone Lake. A colony of moss, worms and various forms of shrimp flourishes in an area where the water is inky black, about 90 degrees Fahrenheit, and a cauldron of nutrients, gases and poisons, the researchers reported in the September issue of Geobiology. The vent is close to 100 feet below the surface of Yellowstone Lake and a third of a mile offshore...

The world's largest known hydrothermal explosion 13,000 years ago may have been created by tsunami-sized waves. That particular explosion created the Mary Bay crater which lies along the north edge of Yellowstone Lake and is over one mile across. Lisa Morgan of the U.S. Geological Survey said that there have been 20 hydrothermal explosions in Yellowstone over the past 14,000 years, most of them leaving craters more than 100 yards across. These explosions are much larger than the similar...

BILLINGS, Mont. -- A newly discovered surface bulge in Yellowstone National Park may be responsible for some unexpected geothermal activity in recent years, according to a study by U.S. Geological Survey scientists. The bulge, about 25 miles across, rose 5 inches from 1997 to 2003 and may have triggered some thermal unrest at Norris Geyser Basin, including a sudden rise in temperatures, new steam vents and the awakening of Steamboat geyser. The findings are part of a paper set to be...

The Lewis and Clark Expedition in the 19th...
