Supervolcano

A supervolcano is any volcano capable of producing a volcanic eruption with an ejecta volume greater than 1,000 km3 (240 cu mi). This is thousands of times larger than normal volcanic eruptions.  The resulting ash cloud would devastate thousands of square miles of land making it unfit for humans and cause a volcanic winter for years.

Below is the list of super calderas capable of creating a supervolcano.

  • Lake Toba
  • Yellowstone hotspot
  • Pacana Caldera
  • Taupo Volcanic Zone
