Thermal Evolution

Did you know that the valley in Yellowstone National Park is rising about 1 inch each year? Caused by the build up of heat from the thermal activity, the ground is slowly rising up causing the wetland to become dry hills and valleys. As one of the most active volcanic areas on the earth, Yellowstone National Park is constantly changing.
