There’s a volcano underneath Yellowstone. Actually, it’s a supervolcanoes. It’s erupted three times in the last two million years, the last time being 640,000 years ago, and all three eruptions produced enough to ash fill the grand canyon.

So for no other reason that we can see except to scare the bejeezus out of us, scientists at the United States Geological Survey have modeled the devastation we could expect in the unlikely event of “a modern day Plinian supererogation.


240 miles of ash would be spewed into the atmosphere to form a giant “umbrella cloud” of debris that would shut down communication and air travel, much like what happened just a few years ago and again last week after a volcano eruption in Iceland.

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.[1] Supervolcanoes can occur whenmagma in the mantle rises into the crust from a hotspot but is unable to break through the crust, and pressure builds in a large and growing magma pool until the crust is unable to contain the pressure (this is the case for theYellowstone Caldera). They can also form at convergent plate boundaries (for example, Toba).
