Quake Swarm Continues Near Nevada/Calif Border


Here is a list of some articles that are good to read to help form a picture of the rifting activity in the Nevada-California border area, to the northeast of Mammoth Mountain volcano. As I mentioned yesterday, this whole area, from Crater Lake to the north to just south of Mexicali and into the Sea of Cortez is a building rifting area. I also listed an article about how extensive the magma plume under Yellowstone is. Good reads! Enjoy.

Here is an essential article about the size of the extensive magma plume under Yellowstone. WHen measuring is via electrical conductivity, instead of via seismic waves, we see a much larger plume than previously believed.
