Scientists using electric and magnetic sensors have mapped the size and composition of a vast plume of hot rock and briny fluid down to 200 miles below Yellowstone National Park's surface, according to a new study soon to be published.
"I think what this will be particularly useful for is we can understand much better the magma distribution of what's under Yellowstone," he said.
The technology is a useful supplement to seismic measurements and will lead to a better understanding of how the earth is forming, he said.
