Is Yellowstone going to erupt?
Yellowstone is not overdue for an eruption. Volcanoes do not work in predictable ways and their eruptions do not follow predictable schedules. In terms of large explosions, Yellowstone has experienced three at 2.08, 1.3, and 0.631 million years ago. This comes out to an average of about 725,000 years between eruptions.
What would happen if Yellowstone erupts?
If the supervolcano underneath Yellowstone National Park ever had another massive eruption, it could spew ash for thousands of miles across the United States, damaging buildings, smothering crops, and shutting down power plants. In fact, it’s even possible that Yellowstone might never have an eruption that large again.
Can Supervolcanoes be stopped?
Probably not. For one thing, you’d have to extract 20 gigawatts of energy to cool the volcano down to a safe temperature, which would take an estimated 16,000 years from start to finish.
Is supervolcano based on a true story?
It’s a wonderful story based on really interesting science,” said Michael Mosley, executive producer of the two-part docu-drama.. Supervolcano centres around a fictional American geologist, Rick, who runs the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory, a character based on one of the real-life scientific advisers to the BBC team.
