Yellowstone volcano is acting up once again, with an “increased risk” warning. Scientists are uneasy with the deep magma intrusion that has been building up ever since it was discovered in nearly four decades ago.

As scientists continue to speculate as to what happened underneath the surface of Yellowstone, they had to resort to the usage of GPS modeling to render what might have happened to explain the erratic nature of the location. The surface seems to be deflating and inflating in irregular patterns.
