13 Taking Yellowstone’s Pulse Hydrothermal features Hydrothermal features in Google Earth

14 Taking Yellowstone’s Pulse Data Links to data files: The National Park Service map as an overlay Satellite images of the ground (LiDAR) Yellowstone’s calderaYellowstone’s caldera Yellowstone’s hot areasYellowstone’s hot areas Links to instructions: Instructions for using Google Earth Instructions for converting an Excel spreadsheet into a file for Google EarthInstructions for converting an Excel spreadsheet into a file for Google Earth

15 Taking Yellowstone’s Pulse Student resources Other Resources Data Map linking to data for individual hydrothermal features. (Search for “rcn montana yellowstone.”) Information Learn about hydrothermal systems and how they work. (Search for “nps how hydrothermal systems work.”) Learn about geysers and other hydrothermal features of Yellowstone. (Search for “yellowstone net geysers.”) Learn more about geysers from the Geyser Observation and Study Assoc. (Search for “geyser observation.”) Learn more measuring volcanic gas emissions. (Search for “usgs monitoring volcanic gases.”)
