Hi Tara, Michael, and all you gazers,

   I have read a few of your logs and blogs about F&M and a question that 
comes to me is:  Over the history of the past 650,000 years and the volcanic 
activity of Yellowstone Park area, and the eons of time ahead of us, of what 
importance is the 10, 15, 25 years of sparatic activity and history of one 
geyser got to do with our knowledge or understanding of the region?  Other 
than collecting and applying statistics to the historical data, will you, 
with what probability, be able to predict the activity over the next 1, 5, 10 
years or more?  What is the destination or goal of your study?  

    I love Yellowstone Park, the geyser activity, the wildlife, the beauty 
of the entire region.  I have visited the Park over 200 times in my fifty 
plus years of "going to Yellowstone", follow the earthquake activity, winter 
snow fall, webcams, etc., but can't for the life of me figure out why the 
efforts that are put into tracking one F&M geyser?  

   I would like to obtain more information as to the knowledge that is hope 
to gain from all of this data?
