[Geysers] Eruption data request (Relay from Scott Bryan)

I have the data you seek and have not yet been able to enter it with detailed notes. I’ve been ill since I returned from my brief Yellowstone trip and have also been focused on my geophysics research this summer. I am wary of posting backcountry data to a virtually public place and do not plan on writing a detailed trip report for this list. Rest assured, the data will be made accessible in an appropriate place.

While I agree that data quality can be an issue, you might consider actually talking to the people who bothered to hike all the way out to Shoshone and giving them a chance to get the data available (I’m now aware you spoke briefly to Will) before posting a public note with a blatant air of superiority, and even then without including an e-mail address that I could privately contact you by to explain my reservations so as not to crowd up the list. Forgive me if I read your tone wrong, but I will make no secret about it - this sort of thing irks me.

All the best,
Mara Reed

Information of that sort is extremely valuable, and necessary for any reasonable archive.
