2020 Numerical models of lower crustal flow explain Yellowstone's "tectonic parabola"
07 Oct 2021 | | Contributor(s):: Jonathan Perry-Houts
Several hypotheses exist for the origin of the seismically active region of high topography surrounding the Yellowstone hotspot track. Among these is the idea that a dense mid-crustal sill has driven viscous lower crust away from the hotspot track, producing crustal thinning/subsidence in the...
