Active Supervolcanoes


Seven Active Supervolcanoes

If you haven’t heard the term, “supervolcano” before, there are seven active supervolcanoes that I know of, with three of them in the United States:

  1. The Yellowstone Caldera in Wyoming
  2. The Long Valley Caldera south of Mono Lake in California
  3. Valles Caldera west of Los Alomos, New Mexico
  4. Lake Toba caldera in North Sumatra, Indonesia
  5. New Zealand’s Taupo caldera
  6. Aira Caldera near the city of Kagoshima, Japan
  7. The Phlegraean Fields west of Naples, Italy

Valles Caldera

Many of these calderas are filled with water. I looked at all of these using Google Earth and thought the Valles Caldera was the most striking.

Yellowstone

Earlier this year, USA Today reported on an enormous magma reservoir found under Yellowstone National Park. That doesn’t mean the reservoir has grown recently, it means the researchers were able to measure it more accurately. From the map you see that ash from an eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano spread as far as Louisiana (about 1,500 miles).

According to creationists, volcanic activity was part of Noah’s Flood. These huge supervolcanic eruptions, therefore, occurred thousands of years ago (not millions of years). Wouldn’t these active supervolcanoes have “gone cold” by now if they were millions of years old?

Read some of my posts below for more thoughts on volcanic eruptions relating to the Flood and also the Bible’s predicted Last Days.
