A volcanic area in Naples, Italy is starting to show signs of reawakening.
The mystery of the Yellowstone Supervolcano is on the road to being solved. Scientists are hard at work to reveal the secrets of the vast subterranean systems that fuel the famous Old Faithful geyser, and other hydrothermal vents at Wyoming’s Yellowstone National Park. Though a 'super-eruption' hasn’t occurred in 13,800 years, mapping out the area will allow scientists to better predict possible natural disasters. The last ‘super-eruption’ that took place resulted in the largest crater on earth.
The record-breaking mega-eruption that lasted for 180 days has produced a rare caldera collapse, a geological phenomenon that happens only for a number of times in a century.
