The huge volcano under Yellowstone National Park has been rising at an unprecedented rate during the past several years, according to a new study.

In the ancient past, the Yellowstone volcano produced some of the biggest-known continental eruptions, but the recent rising doesn’t mean another doomsday eruption is looming, scientists say.

The recent rising is unprecedented for Yellowstone’s caldera — the cauldron-shaped part of the volcano — but it’s not uncommon for other volcanoes around the world. The new study has simply revealed a more active caldera at Yellowstone than scientists realized.

“It’s pretty exciting when you see something that’s five times larger than what you’ve seen in the past,” said Charles Meertens, director of the nonprofit UNAVCO facility in Boulder, Colo., which aids geoscience research. Meertens is a former postdoctoral fellow under one of the study’s authors, Robert Smith of the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.
