30477 22 Sep 1992 @ 1200 --- research-mab 9/22/1992 - no time noted - Veteran majors every 1½ -2 hrs - minor is front back vent – major is back from side vent. Veteran was in constant play during the disturbance. Clarification of Ralph’s observations on Veteran: Minor eruption – top front (pool) vent – top to 5’-6’ sometimes pool partially fills. *major eruption = top to edge of sinter in back of main cone (25+ feet). Front to 2’3’ pool fills to top of fresh sinter. *side (to right as you face the feature) – splashes. It is having majors every 1½-2 hrs – mostly 1h20m to 1h48m, minors are every 11 to 20 minutes.
30437 14 Aug 1992 @ 1200 --- research-mab 8/14/1992 - no time noted -. PS For once I walked by Veteran and was not erupting. All was quiet!
30430 05 Aug 1992 @ 1200 --- research-mab 8/6/1992 - no time noted - Veteran is still not having any major eruptions. It seems to almost constantly spurt water out of the tunnel connected vents, but not out of the side vent to the north.
30422 04 Aug 1992 @ 1200 --- research-mab 8/4/1992 - no time noted - Near Veteran the last few days there has been a lot of run off. I haven’t seen any evidence of majors except for the runoff. It is going towards the creek.

The side vent has no water erupting from it… The top vent erupts ~5 ft inclined away from the trail. The lower vent erupts up through the pool & the pool drains following the eruption.
30642 03 Jul 1990 @ 0845 --- research-mab 7/3/ Veteran happily sputtering & splashing @ 0845
30640 29 Jun 1990 @ 1420 --- research-mab 6/29/90 Veteran was making a lot of noise but not erupting.

30700 08 Jul 1989 @ 1200 --- research-mab 7/8/1989 - no time noted - Veteran Geyser seems to be in continuous eruption. H20 almost continuously spurts from the low vent on the SSW corner of the crater. Periodically boiling increases in vigor and H20 shoots about 10 ft from the upper SW vent. There is evidence (steaming H20 in sinter pockets) of eruptions from the western vent.
7592 05 Feb 1989 @ 0000 05 Feb 1989 @ 2359 JSJ Veteran Geyser active.

30875 02 Aug 1987 @ 1200 --- research-mab August 2, 1987 - no time noted - Veteran Geyser is erupting
30851 05 Jul 1987 @ 1200 --- research-mab 7/5/1987 - no time noted - A gentleman sat and timed Veteran Geyser at a 2 hour interval today. He said that it erupts from a full pool. It has many false starts before it erupts – the pool will fill and then drain slightly then refill, etc! He saw one eruption reaching 20’ and one slightly lower. (“Full” means above the drain vent in the basin.)
30848 23 May 1987 @ 1200 --- research-mab 5/23/1987 - no time noted - Veteran was also seen in eruption that afternoon
33449 09 Oct 1986 @ 1200 --- research-mab 10/09/1986 – no time noted - Veteran Geyser was nearly empty with about 2” of water near the back of it. There was the slightest splashing coming from the back vent. = Veteran’s Auxiliary Vent was bone dry.
33420 03 May 1986 @ 1406 03 May 1986 @ 1717 research-mab May 3, 1986 Veteran Geyser – I sat at Veteran from 2:06 until 5:17 and saw no eruption or even a sign of an eruption. The runoff channel was empty and dry.
30961 22 Aug 1985 @ 1746 --- research-mab 8/22/1985 - inferred time - Summary of Veteran Geyser - From watching it on 7/3 & 7/4 and on 8/21 & 8/22 it was shown that it was definitely still cyclic. It seemed that one day the intervals would be getting more frequent or longer than the intervals of the eruption was the opposite way of the preceding day. If the day before was getting more frequent – then the next day would be getting longer. If the first day the intervals was getting longer, the next day they would be getting more frequent. It definitely is still very cyclic. In my opinion I estimate it is having cycles about 1½ to 2 days for it to go through its complete cycle. The eruptions are mainly 2 to 2 ½ minutes long. The eruptions have been normal Veteran Eruptions with water coming out all three vents = A= the top main vent to 25 feet or so (20 to 30 ft) B= the second vent (hole at the bottom of the basin) Basin half full of water – with water going up to 5/6 feet or so. C= the third vent near the walkway shooting water 10 to 12 feet, to half the walkway. It is still probably very much like it was last year – 1984.
30949 04 Jul 1985 @ 1335 --- research-mab 7/4/1985 - no time noted - Veteran Geyser = the last 2 days (7/3 & 7/4) = have shown that veteran geyser is still cyclic - having it’s cycle 7/3 was getting more frequent, morning of 7/4 it reached its most frequent intervals at 1hr and 35m, then afternoon of 7/4 going down – less frequent.
30937 03 Jul 1985 @ 1200 --- research-mab July 3 1985 – no time noted - Veteran Geyser 190°F, clear water, pool fills churning sound - Eruption witnessed spouted water 25ft from vent, 10ft from side vent & also from front vent.
7609 11 Feb 1984 @ 1800 --- research-mab 02/11/1984 Veteran Geyser active.
31149 18 Aug 1983 @ 1200 --- research-mab Thursday August 18 - no time noted - Veteran doing lots of splashing out of small hole in bowl – muddy water
4664 31 Aug 1982 @ 0830 31 Aug 1982 @ 1823 research-mab 8/31/1982 Veteran was observed continually by various geyser gazers from 0830. Shortly after 1130, the pool to the east, adjacent to Veteran, began filling. By 1400 it was full, as was Veteran’s pool. No eruptions were seen until 1823. David Leeking
31363 31 Jul 1982 @ 1200 --- research-mab 7/31/1982 - no time noted - Veteran 203° splashing between eruptions
31352 27 Jul 1982 @ 1200 --- research-mab 7/27/1982 - no time noted - Veteran geyser – constant splashing, temp 202º, pH 5.0, chloride concentration ~ 847 ppm, the highest level every [sic] recorded in a YNP thermal feature!
31332 18 Jul 1982 @ 1600 --- research-mab July 18 1982 - Veteran’s main pool filled and the front vent and main vent splashed at increasingly shorter intervals till the eruption at 1728. Start times are approximate. The exact second of start is mostly the interpretation of the observer - {Chart: periods of splashing/filling begins 1600}
31244 20 Feb 1982 @ 1200 --- research-mab February 20 1982 - no time noted - Veteran Geyser 198º right after an eruption chugging noisily. (When a [sic] saw an eruption a few days later, there was no H20 in the pool prior to the eruption. The pool filled during the eruption & quickly drained afterwards.)

4972 18 Jun 1980 @ 1800 --- research-mab 06/18/1980 -Veteran Geyser – center and left pools partially filled the center pool’s vent has closed its right outlet since my June 16th observation. The activity now centers in the top vent and the newly filled left vent.
5030 13 Jul 1979 @ 0900 13 Jul 1979 @ 1030 research-mab 07/13/1979 NOTE Veteran’s pool was filled with aqua water about 4” above the top of the side hole when I arrived about 0900. The pool would gradually fill about two more inches, the geyser vent would do some very minor splashing, then all would go quiet and the pool would subside about 2”. I watched this cycle about 3 times until 0915 but the geyser never erupted nor did the pool drain completely. {I watched it same thing at 1030 – Helen}
5024 18 Jun 1979 @ 1530 --- research-mab 06/18/1979 A visitor reported that about the time Steamboat began, Veter[a]n drained completely dry. When checked at 1730 Veter[a]n was behaving normally with the usual amount of water.
32179 28 Aug 1978 @ 1500 28 Aug 1978 @ 1615 research-mab 08/28/1978 Veteran full at 1500 hrs but still no eruption by 1615
32138 25 Jul 1978 @ 1525 --- research-mab 07/25/1978 - no time noted - Veteran is dead today it fills & sloshes & emptied – minor eruption a little overflow & a burst 1 foot above 3:25 Veteran minor eruptions (~1foot) at 4:40
32127 12 Jul 1978 @ 1200 --- research-mab 07/12/1978 - no time noted - Veteran for over 1 hour it filled splashed and no eruption
32074 02 Apr 1978 @ 1200 --- research-mab April 2 1978 - no time noted - Veteran was chugging, splashing & filling its pool, but no eruptions!
5117 20 Aug 1977 @ 0845 --- research-mab 08/20/1977 At 0845 this morning Veteran was full of water like it gets during an eruption but was not splashing and churning like it normally does. Judging from the dry rocks and lack of spray marks on the trail, it has not had a major eruption for some time. The water level continued to rise but still no eruption.
5261 18 Aug 1976 @ 0825 --- research-mab 08/18/1976 {Full log entry log} Watched Veteran in one of its frenzies of activity from 8:00-8:20 0802 recently erupted 0804 began minor splashing 0805 began minor splashing from “main” vent 0805 major eruption began – all 3 vents active. Lasted 45 sec. Activity declined, sloshing 0807 minor activity began again – only main vent active 0808 major eruption – very powerful last 1:04 Activity declined, sloshing heard 0811 major eruption begins 0812 major eruption, lasting about 1:11 Activity fades, geyser quiet a little longer now 0815 minor eruption 0816 major eruption, last ~40 sec 0817 – 0819 minor eruption 0820 activity fades. All major eruptions were preceded by 20 sec to a minute of minor play. Major eruptions reached heights of as much as 7’ & shot across sinter as far as 15’. Side vent was active but sprays barely could be seen. Was rained away at 0825, when the geyser seemed to be finishing its entire display.
5546 09 Jul 1976 @ 1800 --- research-mab 07/09/1976 Veteran Geyser – still acting strangely - intermittent geysering but no major eruption preceded or follows activity
5542 07 Jul 1976 @ 1800 --- research-mab 07/07/1976 Veteran – has been acting strangely. Eruptive state was uncharacteristic of its “normal activity.” Pool in crater filled above vent. Water began belching from top vent at heights of 2-3 feet.
5543 07 Jul 1976 @ 1800 --- research-mab 07/07/1976 Veteran – has been acting strangely. Eruptive state was uncharacteristic of its “normal activity.” Pool in crater filled above vent. Water began belching from top vent at heights of 2-3 feet.
32381 26 Jun 1976 @ 1135 --- research-mab June 26 1976 - 1135 Marker was replaced at Veteran Geyser again water was warm in runoff channels.
32380 26 Jun 1976 @ 0930 --- research-mab June 26 1976 Replaced marker on Veteran Geyser 0930 am. Apparently I arrived soon after an eruption. Water was still warm in pools west of vent.
5861 28 May 1976 @ 1040 28 May 1976 @ 1115 research-mab 05/28/1976 Veteran behaving strangely from ~ 1040 to 1115. 1040 finished eruption 1042 d=1m09s, 1045 d=1m01s, 1048 d=1m03s, 1051 d=56s, 1054 d=54s, 1058 d=1m03s, 1102 d=55s (side vent didn’t activate), 1104 d=1m10s (wasn’t so powerful), 1107 d=1m20s, 1110 d=1m27s There was a great deal of agitation & splashing out of all vents between recorded eruptions. However, activity recorded was a steady, continuous eruption for the durations noted. Checked it after Echinus’ eruption, but it had settled down.
5632 06 Aug 1975 @ 0800 06 Aug 1975 @ 1800 research-mab 08/06/1975 Veteran in another frenzy of activity – evidence of frequent eruptions today. Visitors on 1200 walk saw two eruptions in succession.
5627 29 Jul 1975 @ 1800 --- research-mab 07/29/1975 Watched Veteran to see if it would repeat yesterday’s activity, but nothing was observed other than the usual sloshing.
5625 28 Jul 1975 @ 1615 --- research-mab 07/28/1975 Veteran shows evidence of not having erupted since its furious frenzy of activity this morning ( as of 4:15 pm).
5626 28 Jul 1975 @ 0950 28 Jul 1975 @ 1035 research-mab 07/28/1975 Veteran is behaving in an astonishing manner! Erupted six (6) times between 10:09 a.m. and 10:35 a.m.. Approximate intervals – three minutes. Erupted each time the adjacent pool drained back into it. Evidence of other eruptions not witnessed between 9:50 and 10:09. Each eruption a major one, hurling water as far as the grass and lodgepoles on the far side of the run-off channel; water thrown on the trail through the subsidiary vent pointing at the trail.
32605 02 Jul 1975 @ 1200 --- research-mab 07/02/1975 - post 6-30 quake no times noted - Veteran clear
5859 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}
5964 11 Apr 1973 @ 1220 11 Apr 1973 @ 1523 research-mab 04/11/1973 Veteran Observations ended at 3:23 ~ 18 minutes without an eruption Since it is 20 minutes between 2:10 and 2:30 it is quite possible that there were 2 eruptions during that time interval, 4 might have been between 1222 and 1253, 7 or 8 between 1258 and 2:10 if the average interval remained unchanged. Water was shot in 3 directions from 3 vents, the maximum being 36 feet (horizontal) from the main vent (measured)( & 15 feet vertically (estimated).
5913 11 Mar 1973 @ 1800 --- research-mab 03/11/1973 Veteran: duration 22 seconds estimated height 10 feet. {no time noted}
6469 04 Oct 1972 @ 1800 --- research-mab 10/04/1972 Veteran seems to be more active now, erupting several times an hour perhaps.
33350 30 Sep 1972 @ 1200 --- research-mab 1972 - no time no date - approx end of season note - Active all summer, no cycle has been observed in this geyser – may play several times a day for about 5 minutes. Fills the basin to the north and will throw water out to the south west at an angle to about 10 to 14 feet.
6445 29 Aug 1972 @ 1531 --- research-mab 08/29/1972 It appears that Veteran, The Dog’s Leg, & the new fissure geyser to the NW and Corporal Geyser are all interconnected. At 3:31 an increase of steam from Veteran was accompanied by a rise in water level with bubbling & overflow from Corporal followed by a drop in water level in The Dog’s Leg and an eruption of the new fissure geyser. This was in turn immediately followed by a drop in the pool level in Corporal & a rise in The Dog’s Leg.
6340 18 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)
32889 16 May 1972 @ 1200 --- research-mab 05/16/1972 - no time noted - Veteran Geyser – have not yet seen a good eruption just minor play - 201º
33351 31 Jul 1971 @ 1200 --- research-mab July 31 1971 - no time - Playing about as last year. May play as much as three times an hour – water 92C (197F)
33352 30 Jun 1970 @ 1200 --- research-mab 34. Veteran Geyser June 1970 - no time - No change- playing “several” times per day - Aug 11 air 64F Water 200F [NOTE no date in Thermal Record – EOM]
33321 12 Aug 1969 @ 1200 --- research-mab 1969 - no time - Not as active as last year the basin on the north fills only when the geyser plays. Last year the north basin had water above the window most of the time. Aug 12 198ºF Erupts about twice in a 12 to 18 hr time period.
33322 16 Jul 1969 @ 1200 --- research-mab July 16 1969 – no time - 98ºF & PH 7.2
7509 07 Jun 1969 @ 1800 --- research-mab 06/07/1969 Ebony and Veteran erupted. {no specific times}
7482 03 Jun 1969 @ 1800 --- research-mab 06/03/1969 Veteran – a 15 minute cycle. I observed three eruptions., one play producing jets some 30 feet away, the other the eruptions were smaller about 10’ {no time noted}
