Vulcano - Italy

Vulcano is a small volcanic island in the Tyrrhenian Sea, about 25 km north of Sicily and the southernmost of the Aeolian Islands. It is 21 square kilometres in area, rises to 499 metres, and contains several volcanic centres, including one of four active non-submarine volcanos in Italy and the formerly separate islet of Vulcanello.

Discussion on Vulcano

ssncnmks :

We hear a lot about the super vulcano's around Yellow Stone and in the sea around Indonesia. Do you think the recent heavy earthqueakes in that area may be due to an eminent eruption; and what about Yellow Stone - is it due for an eruption?

Efnissien :
"The Yellowstone super volcano is overdue. I think it's average period between eruptions is 50,000 years. However, it's been more than 70,000 since the last. If it does go most of the continental US would be uninhabitable."
some random person :
"yes, we're all going to die tomorrow so you don't have to do your homework : ). but seriously, the Mayan calendar says the end of the world is December somthing or other 2012."
allen m :
"Lake Toba in Sumatra, Indonesia erupted 75 thousand years ago. But although it is due to erupt again, this may happen for the next thousand years (estimated). Yellow stone super volcano, though, is showing signs that it is accumulating magma rapidly. It's in the stage where the magma chamber begins to swell and more probably to erupt earlier hopefully not within our era's lifetime."
adkgeogirl04 :
"There is no due date for an eruption but... It is possible that it will go within the next 100 years. Geologists/Geophysics researchers are putting together all they know to find out. I know there was a PBS broadcast about Yellow Stone the Supervolcano you may want to consider contacting them. Also if you visit you can find the same information that geologists use. I am a Structural Geologist who wanted to be a volcanologist so I use that site alot."
