Scientists decipher the magma bodies under Yellowstone

We all know about the supervolcano boiling underneath Yellowstone - but, until now, we didn't know what was fueling the cauldron. This week, scientists revealed that they were able to model the behavior of two magma chambers underground by using supercomputer technology. At one point, these two magma lakes almost meet, forming a slab of pressure-trapping rock. That rock could be the powder keg that fuels the volcano.[...]
