4729 03 Jul 2000 @ 1800 --- research-mab 7/03/2000 NOTE: Orby is active, water in Rubble
4688 02 Aug 1987 @ 1800 --- research-mab 8/2/1987 Rubble Geyser shows run off.
4683 28 Aug 1984 @ 1800 --- research-mab 8/28/1984 Rubble (has erupted with run off eroding the walkway as far as Palpitator)
7601 11 Feb 1984 @ 1800 --- research-mab 02/11/1984 “Fissure Geyser” 1971 {Rubble} 58ºC Seep discharge (est 1/8 gpm) All of the basin & vents are lined with 30-40cm long filimentous algae covered bacteria ranging from creamy white in the warmest portions to orange-brown-red like the color of an Irish setter dog.
4661 15 Nov 1981 @ 1800 --- research-mab 11/15/1981 Rubble The sneaky little devil waited until after Fred & I cleared out (in late Sept) its planned runoff channel & filled in the trench it has dug in the trail before it started erupting again. It has dug a wonderful 6” deep trench (that looks perfect for twisting ankles) down the middle of the trail toward Palpitator. The H20 is clear & 148º. It is currently active & erupting.
4660 10 Aug 1981 @ 1800 --- research-mab 8-10-81 Rubble must be erupting 2-3 times per day since the runoff channel is always wet & my markers are never there when I return. The path was wet almost all the way to Palpitator today so it must put out alot of water.
4657 05 Aug 1981 @ 1800 --- research-mab 8/5/1981 Rubble Geyser has erupted again! (no time listed)
4625 06 Jun 1981 @ 0000 --- research-mab 6/6/1981 Rubble Geyser – incredible filamentous bacteria waving back and forth, slight trickle of overflow 141ºF
4611 20 Sep 1980 @ 1800 --- research-mab 9/20/1980 Rubble Geyser – calm, no evidence of eruptions this summer. Long bacteria (white) streamers 143ºF
5079 09 Jun 1980 @ 1800 --- research-mab 06/09/1980 Rubble Geyser – water in vent 139ºF, marker from one week ago still in place
5025 30 Jun 1979 @ 1800 --- research-mab 06/30/1979 Rubble had an eruption sometime recently.
5020 17 Jun 1979 @ 1800 --- research-mab 06/17/1979 Rubble (New Fissure) Geyser must emit goodly amounts of water judging from the runoff channel it is making in the trail.
5018 15 Jun 1979 @ 1800 --- research-mab 06/15/1979 New Fissure is washing out the trail – it has erupted two previous nights -also called Rubble Geyser
5014 30 May 1979 @ 1210 --- research-mab 05/30/1979 There has been recent runoff from “New Fissure” (or Rubble) Geyser near Corporal. Put a marker on it at 1210.
5258 25 Aug 1976 @ 1800 --- research-mab 08/25/1976 Rubble Geyser has long strings of sulphur bacteria growing in both of its vents.
5269 31 Jul 1976 @ 1800 --- research-mab 07/31/1976 Rubble Geyser - - has approximately 2-3 inches of water in two separate pools. Feature was seen completely dry during month of June.
5660 27 Aug 1975 @ 1800 --- research-mab 08/27/1975 Rubble Geyser – great deal of overflow from Rubble. The feature’s overflow has flooded the walk below the feature. Evidently this vigorous activity occurred last night or early this morning – { flooded because washout out channel near drain tile, channel now repaired}
5592 14 Jun 1975 @ 1800 --- research-mab 06/14/1975 Watched Rubble “erupt” ~ Area fills to overflowing. Heavy overflow before eruption. About the time overflow reaches the walk, the vent starts bubbling vigorously 6”-24”. Overflow becomes less. Activity stops after a minute or two and what what that remains drains down vent.
5860 07 Jun 1974 @ 1800 --- research-mab 06/07/1974 Observed Dr Morey’s Porkchop, Vixen, Veteran and my “Rubble Geyser” (Hodie’s New Crater Geyser”) in eruption. {no times noted}
6161 18 Sep 1973 @ 1800 --- research-mab 09/18/1973 New Fissure Geyser – some water but low level as with Corporal and Veteran also. Marker of brown needles placed in runoff.
5975 29 Apr 1973 @ 1800 --- research-mab 04/29/1973 New 1971 Fissure in “eruption” with heavy discharge and splashing up to 2-3 feet in latter half of play. Was accompanied by discharge from Corporal Geyser. {no time}
6339 17 Jun 1972 @ 1415 --- research-mab 06/18/1972 On a tour of the Back Basin this afternoon (2:15-3:15) the following geysers were observed Echinus, Vixen, New Crevice (1’), Veteran (10’ up, 20-25’ out)
6568 07 Sep 1971 @ 1015 --- research-mab 09/07/1971 No activity out of either Dr. Morey’s Porkchop or Rick’s new thing {Rubble Geyser} when I checked at 10:15 this morning.
7683 06 Sep 1971 @ 0950 06 Sep 1971 @ 1900 research-mab 09/06/1971 A new thermal feature located about 48 feet north west of the west edge of Corporal Geyser’s pool apparently has increased in activity with much erosion during the night and its first known recent play occurring between 9:40 & 10:10 AM. This is probably an enlargement or extension of the “small {new} vent” which was reported to have started to play in July in the Norris Thermal record. The thermal feature is aligned on a NW-SE direction with Corporal & Dog’s Leg, apparently along a joint, with its greatest dimension in this direction. It is irregular in shape with its present measurements as follows: Length: 11’8” (starting under a “live” small green lodgepole pine on the N.W. to about 1 ½ feet beyond an old dead stump on the SE); width: varying from 34 to 72 inches, and maximum depth: 11 inches. Play was observed at 4:35, 5:24, 6:09, 6:58 (average interval ~~ 48 minutes). The play was preceded by increases in the amount of steam coming out of the ground, then a rapid filling and overflowing – starting first at the SE end, then spreading NW from other low points {filling phase lasting 40-60 seconds}. This was immediately followed by a vigorous boiling action throwing water, sand & geyserite chips to a height of 1 foot. “The eruption”, again starting & ending first at the SE end and starting & ending last at the NW end {duration: 2 minutes}. During the last 30-40 seconds of the play there is rapid draining of the water back into the ground finished off near the NW end by a final bubbling sound down below the surface. It is quite a sensation to set at the edge of the feature and feel the ground below you shaking vigorously! The bottom of the feature is made of small loose geyserite thin plates and porous tabular bodies of small geyserite fragments. R.A.H.
