Yellowstone diffuse degassing area (Wyoming, USA)

Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

Volcano: Yellowstone Plateau (see Yellowstone Plateau at the Smithsonian Institution website in a new tab)
Type: Soil Diffuse Emission
Description: Yellowstone supports extensive hydrothermal activity that is related to at least one large hydrothermal reservoir at depth with an estimated temperature in excess of 300°C. Land area estimates for neutral-chloride, travertine-precipitating, and acid-sulfate areas were obtained from a digital database of the 1996 Yellowstone Soil Survey at the Spatial Analysis Center, Yellowstone National Park.
