Beneath the Pacific Ocean is growing supervolcano

February 13, 2013. According to the Huffington UK, U.S. researchers from the University of Utah found at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean supervolcano, which is able to destroy the Earth.

Scientists say that two chemical bladder the size of a continent of partially molten rock, converge beneath the Pacific Ocean, and it seems that will create a new supervolcano.

It can bring the world scale disaster.

Volcanoes

12.04.11.Novosti USA, Salt Lake City. Recent powerful earthquake that rocked New Zealand and Japan, made scientists take a closer look to the more powerful volcanoes on the planet.

Researchers Robert Smith and Michael Zhdanov, University of Utah (Salt Lake City) to trace the path of seismic waves from the earthquake off Japan and check data Yellowstone supervolcanoes. Results stunned scientists: it turns out, so far the available data on the structure of the subsoil Yellowstone caldera wrong.

Caldera — is tsirkoobraznaya depression, caused by the failure of volcanic mountains in force and reaching tens of kilometers in

Global cataclysm will begin in Yellowstone?

About monstrous catastrophe which may soon happen in the U.S., the BBC BBC removes creepy popular science film. He will tell Waiting mankind cataclysm supervolcano explosion.

"The epidemic can be stopped. WAR — PREVENT diplomatic efforts. ASTEROID — go astray MNOGOMEGATONNYM charge. But volcanoes blocked the pharynx, and even SUCH AS THE VESUVIUS who even looks like some "Manneken Pis" against the background of the fountain "Friendship of Peoples", is unlikely. According to scientists supervolcano explosion of such await us in the near future. "

Worried eyes are on the territory of today's most popular National Park, a favorite

Supervolcanoes — the most destructive force on the planet

Power of their eruptions of supervolcanoes ten times more than ordinary volcanoes. While they were asleep for hundreds of thousands of years, the magma is trapped in huge tanks inside their mouths. But once she poured on the surface of the earth with apocalyptic force, capable of destroying entire continents. Such sleeping "monsters" in the world just a few.

The last eruption was in tremendous Tobe in Sumatra 75,000 years ago. This eruption changed life on Earth. Thousands of cubic kilometers of ash into the atmosphere, and the sun could not penetrate its thickness. There has been a decrease in

Pompeian volcano threatens a new judgment day

Supervolcano, hidden near the Italian Pompeii, can wake up and kill millions of people. This is the conclusion reached by scientists, noting that this is not the only potentially dangerous volcano — the other in the U.S., Indonesia, Japan and Siberia.

'Eruption could have global catastrophic consequences comparable to meteorite"- Said the Italian scientist Giuseppe De Natale. According to him, fortunately, the eruption at full power are extremely rare." But in some densely populated areas may be a slight rash, which also pose a risk to the public, "- he said.

Scientists note that the supervolcano near Pompeii

Scientists fear waking supervolcanoes

Seismic activity in the world in recent years is alarming: even relatively stable in terms of the tectonic regions, such as the American Yellowstone Park in Wyoming, USA, gives cause for concern. The so-called supervolcanoes, which concerns the Yellowstone, according to scientists, now pose a major threat. Any one of them has a catastrophic destructive.

It is believed that the Yellowstone supervolcano has a volume greater than 1,000 cubic kilometers. There are three known supervolcano eruption of this occurring at a frequency of about 600 thousand years — 2.1 million years ago, the next — about 1.2 million years

Yellowstone Volcano was larger than scientists expected

Measurements showed that the cavity of the famous Yellowstone supervolcano bigger than previously thought. Geophysics, University of Utah conducted the first large-scale mapping of the electrical conductivity of the gigantic underground navel hot and partly molten rock that feeds the Yellowstone supervolcano famous.

Supervolcanoes considered the largest, most destructive threat to the Earth. Fortunately for us, they rarely erupt, hundreds of thousands of years accumulating in their vast reservoirs of molten magma, then to arrange the planet Apocalypse, is a thousand times superior to the usual effects of the eruption. Supervolcanoes on Earth a few, the most famous is
