UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) – The Steamboat geyser in Yellowstone National Park in the United States erupted three times in six weeks, geologists say says the activity is unusual.
The geyser Steamboat, considered the largest active geyser in the world to date, has recently been an intense activity, announced US geologists. They say that over the past six weeks, the geyser has erupted three times, including one last week, and say that such frequency is not typical of the Steamboat, reports Reuters.
It is in the famous Yellowstone National Park in the United States that the impressive spectacle of nature occurs. The nature reserve is also home to a huge volcano, but scientists claim that the hot water jets do not predict a future volcanic eruption.

Yellowstone is one of the largest super-volcanoes in the world. It is in this region that seismic shocks frequently occur and geothermal activity is the strongest on the continent. The Steamboat can be up to 90 meters high. It erupted on March 15 and April 19 and 27. Last time, three similar eruptions were recorded in 2003.
