Super Volcanoes

Supervolcanoes are massive volcanoes that can lay dormant for thousands of years before erupting with catastrophic consequences. These rare but powerful events can spew ash, gas, and debris high into the atmosphere, causing widespread climate disruption and global cooling. The aftermath of a supervolcanic eruption can last for years, with lingering effects on weather patterns, agriculture, and even human civilization. The largest known supervolcanoes are located in Yellowstone National Park in the United States and Lake Toba in Indonesia, and scientists continue to study these geological behemoths to better understand their potential impact on the planet.
