10727 04 Nov 2018 @ 1152 --- MAB Full. No idea if from snowfall or internal filling. Saw bubbles but didn't stay to see if it would thump, it was blustery out there! Wet warm ground - no idea if there is other overflow than the typical flow to the west, but there was no snow on the ground surrounding Pearl for quite a ways in all directions.
10397 23 Sep 2018 @ 1004 --- MAB Platform full and slight trickle overflow. Bubbles and nice thumps too.
9905 28 Aug 2018 @ 1016 --- cb bubbles that are breaking the surface
9663 10 Aug 2018 @ 1413 10 Aug 2018 @ 1414 MAB Clear w small bubbles. Not overflowing. Thumps 1413, louder more distinct thumps 1414
9437 03 Aug 2018 @ 1113 --- cb clear pool with a slight bubbling that breaks the surface. Occasionally I've seen doming that produces convection waves.
9161 12 Jul 2018 @ 1025 --- cb still has a yellow hue to the pool
9133 11 Jul 2018 @ 0954 --- Tara Gently bubbling, full but barely overflowing, yellowish water with yellow deposits in crater.
8879 21 Jun 2018 @ 0948 21 Jun 2018 @ 0951 Polly Pearl looks like a pool with a boiling vent in the center. It had constant boiling and overflow during my observation. There is also a steam vent across the boardwalk from Pearl that is very loud at times (I could hear it from Veteran.)
8560 03 Jun 2018 @ 0849 03 Jun 2018 @ 1510 Siegmund At 0849, calm, slight overflow. Hot enough to be all blue. Clear water, no trace of milkiness. At 1147, Firehole Pool style blue flashes in bottom of the crater, but boiling never reached the surface. At 1510, quiet overflow with gas bubbles.
8292 25 May 2018 @ 0703 --- jazzknick Gentle convection and bubbling, barely perceptible overflow as pool rises and falls perhaps an inch. Bubbling appears to be vaguely cyclic, mostly on with pauses of about 10 to 25 seconds every few minutes. Just before pause convection increases and small waves push toward edge. Pool cycle is longer than bubble cycle, lasting at least 15 minutes.
8210 15 May 2018 @ 1000 --- MAB Pearl in very slight overflow most of the day 5/15
8112 07 May 2018 @ 1722 --- MAB Pearl THUMPS - tiny bubbles - tiny ripples, no overflow, but good thumps!
3803 23 Oct 2016 @ 1030 --- DanS Full Pool with slight overflow
3551 26 Aug 2016 @ 1400 --- Kent Pearl in overflow. Water clear, not opalescent
3487 13 Aug 2016 @ 0811 --- sfavor runoff noted
3225 24 Jun 2016 @ 1102 --- David full. appears to have overflowed recently. see photo: https://www.flickr.com/photos/ujelang/27833992940/in/dateposted-public/
2972 05 Jun 2016 @ 1100 --- MAB Fuller than my last visit (6-01) with slight overflow to the N. Overflow marks were dried out and invisible by 1530
2942 01 Jun 2016 @ 1252 --- MAB Not overflowing, but has some bubbles
2787 26 Apr 2016 @ 1500 --- sfavor Noted runoff from recent activity. Small unnamed feature across boardwalk seemed more active than normal.
2741 16 Apr 2016 @ 1215 --- Siegmund A trickle of overflow out the back side, a lovely robin-egg blue color in the center. Prettiest I've seen it look in years.
2483 05 Oct 2015 @ 1700 --- MAB Full with a slight overflow-seep to the north, but probably from the rainy weekend. No bubbles seen coming from the vent.
2379 18 Sep 2015 @ 1346 --- MAB More bubbling from the vent than my last visit. Rains have quit so can state it is fuller. Not in overflow, yet, but there is a dark seep on the north side towards Vixen. Vent is light green.
2357 15 Sep 2015 @ 1425 --- MAB Bubbles and convection from the vent. Hard to determine how much new water infused onto the platform since the 12th due to heavy rains, but the green in the vent is disappearing.
3226 30 Sep 2013 @ 1124 --- David level down about 1". calm water; milky blue. see: https://www.flickr.com/photos/ujelang/10018719196/in/photolist-JpAuo1-ggjyaS

4732 19 Jul 2001 @ 1800 --- research-mab 7/19/2001 Pearl: almost constant play, 1-4 feet
4708 02 Jul 1990 @ 1800 --- research-mab 7/2/90 Pearl is steaming. Vixen erupted this a.m. - water around vent. So did Veteran Geyser.
4713 25 Jun 1990 @ 0900 --- research-mab 6/25/1990 Pearl Geyser is steaming, that’s all. Removed lots of rocks from around the vent & a big stick from within vent.
7590 05 Feb 1989 @ 0000 05 Feb 1989 @ 2359 JSJ Central vent full to 3 centimeters below overflow - varies. Slight bubbling.
4686 06 Aug 1987 @ 1800 --- research-mab 8/6/1987 Pearl Geyser remains drained and Porkchop diminished in eruptive height and intensity.
7603 11 Feb 1984 @ 1800 --- research-mab 02/11/1984 Pearl Geyser. Strong pulsations & wave action 78ºC
5137 09 Jun 1980 @ 1800 --- research-mab 06/09/1980 Pearl Geyser – pulsing nicely and occasionally bursting to one foot 179ºF
5609 30 Jun 1975 @ 1800 --- research-mab 06/30/1975 Interesting Back Basin Note (post quakes) Pearl was crystal clear, Echinus was quite gray in color. Emerald Spring gray
6106 02 Sep 1973 @ 1800 --- research-mab 09/02/1973 Water seen in vent between Pearl & Vixen {generic time}
6015 11 Apr 1973 @ 1500 --- research-mab 4/11/1973 {time approx} Pearl Geyser – much new silica in channels 161
6532 10 Sep 1971 @ 1800 --- research-mab 09/10/1971 Pearl Geyser – pool is also clear as usual but surface is much more agitated by waves and pulsations than normal. This evening occasional steam explosions from below were able to burst to the surface and shoot water as high as 3 feet – which is the first time for at least the past 2 summers.
