Volcanologists made alarming discovery: a super-volcano located in Germany becomes active again.
Super volcano under the lake near Bonn Laaher erupts approximately every 10 000-12 000 years, and its last eruption was 12,900 years ago.
He's about the same size as Mount Pinatubo, which in 1991 caused the largest eruption of the twentieth century. Pinatubo released into the air 10 billion tons of magma, 20 billion tons of sulfur dioxide and 16 cubic kilometers of ash, which led to a decrease in global temperature by 0.5 degrees Celsius.
Erupted when the last time a super volcano Laaher covered with ash and volcanic rocks in the area of 1600 square kilometers. In recent years, this region occurred several earthquakes, evidence that the volcano becomes active again.
Experts say that if you start Laaher eruption, it could lead to a great disaster, requiring massive evacuation. Significant eruption could cause global cooling, as the ash cloud will block access to sunlight.
In the video, filmed at Lake Laaher can see bubbles of carbon dioxide, which come to the surface. Volcanologists believe that this shows that the volcano is active.
