Yellowstone’s Steamboat Geyser Breaks Record

EarthSky reports

In the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory’s monthly update in early September, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) announced that Steamboat geyser – one of Yellowstone’s famous geysers, often said to be Earth’s tallest geyser – had broken its own yearly eruption record. USGS said:

August 2019 was another record-setting month for Steamboat geyser, which experienced water eruptions on August 12, 20, and 27. The August 27 eruption was the 33rd of 2019, breaking the record for eruptions in a calendar year that was set in 2018.
