Supervolcanoes: Nature's Powerful Secret

Nature has a way of keeping us on our toes. The Supervolcano is a colossal giant that that has been documented throughout Earth's history. Though eruptions from these massive beasts are rare the force behind them can be potentially devstating.

Nature harbors some very powerful secrets. Believe it or not, the Supervolcano is neither a myth nor the work of science fiction. The reality is that these catastrophic giants exist among us and have been documented throughout Earth's long, tumultuous history. However, before pressing the panic button keep in mind that according to scientists there is no imminent threat from these destructive forces so the cause for concern is considered very minimal at this time. In fact, geological evidence suggests that the eruption of a Supervolcano is a relatively rare event.

The last known Supervolcano eruption is documented to have occurred in 1815 at Mount Tambora in Indonesia. This is the Supervolcano that is suspect in causing the worst famine of the 19th century that severely impacted the Northern Hemisphere and resulted in massive deaths due to starvation and disease. Large amounts of sulfur released into the stratosphere caused a veil to form over the Earth which repelled solar radiation waves back into space and resulted in global cooling. As a result there were extreme weather conditions experienced especially in the Northern Hemisphere that resulted in the 'Year Without a Summer' in 1816 as temperatures dropped low enough to cause crop failure, rampant disease, and starvation.

Although Supervolcanoes are not currently deemed a worrisome threat this has not always been the case. It has been theorized by scientists that at one point in our history the Supervolcano Toba in Sumatra, Indonesia which erupted around 74,000 years ago was responsible for threatening the very existence of mankind resulting in a bottleneck in human evolution. Those that support this theory estimate that our numbers were reduced to 6,000-10,000 individuals. It is believed that the supereruption triggered a global cold spell that produced a volcanic winter lasting up to 10 years and was far more devastating in nature than that of Mount Tambora in 1815. This theory claims that evidence of this is located within our own genome.

There exists a distinguishable difference between Supervolcanoes and normal volcanoes in regards to formation and measured 'explosivity.' Normal volcanoes retain a mountain-shaped cone that is formed when magma rises to the top through a crack or crevice and flows down the sides. The erupted magma and debris then begin to cool which lends the volcano its signature cone shape. Supervolcanoes form in a different manner with far more volatile consequences. A large super heated bubble of magma develops below the earth's crust. Increasing in size over time the pressure finally becomes so enormous that it causes the Supervolcano to erupt. Magma escapes through cracks that run toward the surface causing the earth's crust above the magma pool to collapse creating a caldera or crater. With even greater pressure now on the magma pool the Supervolcano explodes violently sending huge plumes of smoke, ash, and debris skyward as well as enormous pyroclastic flows racing across the land. The level of devastation is biblical in nature.

The explosive nature of an eruption is measured using The Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI) which takes into account several factors that include the volume of pyroclastic material (ash, rock, lava, pumice, etc.) that is ejected, the height of the plume of erupted material towards the skyline, and the duration of the eruption. Based on an index that extends from 0 to 8 each number indicates an increase by a factor of 10. Supervolcanoes are classified as VEI 8 which indicates at least 1000 cubic kilometers of volcanic material has been ejected and deposited. These eruptions have the ability to affect climate on a global scale over spans of several years in some cases.

Yellowstone National Park is home to a famous Supervolcano which took center stage in a 2005 docudrama produced by the BBC and Discovery Channel. It has been suggested that this movie provides an accurate portrayal of the effects of a supereruption if it were to occur in the near future. In Yellowstone, the most recent supereruption is documented at 640,000 years ago. There is a long trail of calderas situated across Yellowstone about 350 miles in length. This trail indicates that the continent has moved over the years as the 'hot spot' (area of igneous rock indicating a consistent magma presence) remains in place.

There are several other Supervolcanoes that have been discovered over the years though the exact number that actually exists is incomplete at this time. Supervolcanoes have been revealed to occur underwater as well which lends to a much greater uncertainty as to how many currently exist. Alongside Yellowstone there is the Supervolcano caldera known as Toba in Sumatra, Indonesia; the Long Valley caldera in California; Lake Taupo, New Zealand; Valles Caldera, New Mexico; Aira, Japan; and the Siberian Traps in Siberia. Geological evidence indicates that these areas housed massive Supervolcanoes that erupted at various points throughout Earth's history.

Ongoing research of this amazing natural phenomenon continues to reveal the awesome power and potential global consequences of these massive structures. Although the risk of a Supervolcano erupting in our near future cannot be completely ruled out scientists have suggested based on their findings that it is minimal at this time. The study of these magnificent beasts will help us in better understanding their inner workings and perhaps in predicting the possibility of eruption, potential magnitude, and the effects so as to provide advanced warning for those that live among these devastating giants.
