You will find other supervolcanoes on the planet, most of which exploded in prehistoric occasions and may erupt again. A minumum of one has already established an eruption larger than Yellowstone’s biggest and could have performed a vital role in shaping history.
A brief history – the location – of others is less certain. Some are identifiable only through the deep layers of ash they left out, like the a lot more than 1,000 cubic miles of tuff left in eastern Africa and also the Red-colored Ocean with a mystery eruption somewhere in Ethiopia.
You will find also calderas which have simply not been well analyzed, an excellent example being Ethiopia’s 460-square-mile Awasa caldera and also the 1,000-square-mile Pastos Grandes caldera of Bolivia, which rivals the second, which rivals the biggest on the planet: Lake Toba, Indonesia.tags: Earth, Supervolcanoes
