The ever-changing geology of Yellowstone is fueled by the Yellowstone Hotspot. The hotspot eruptive centers date back at least 17 million years and there is evidence for much older intrusions. Come hear a presentation by one of the leading researchers in the field, Dr. Lisa Morgan, along with Outreach Educator George Miller. Learn about the morphology of the hotspot and very recent steam explosions in Yellowstone National Park.

Lisa is a scientist emeritus, former senior research geologist, for the U.S. Geological Survey, whose focus is on the geology and geophysics of volcanic terrains. She has studied the Yellowstone hot spot and Yellowstone Lake for more than 20 years, and her research focuses on the geology and associated hazards in Yellowstone Lake, physical processes associated with eruption of the post-glacial (100 m diameter) hydrothermal explosion craters, the physical characteristics associated with emplacement of the 0.64-Ma Lava Creek Tuff, and development of the Yellowstone caldera, and emplacement of post-caldera rhyolitic lava and pyroclastic flows on the Central Plateau.
George is the Outreach Educator and Education Web Content Creator at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West.
