Researchers Drop Some Very Bad News About Massive Supervolcano Underneath Yellowstone

The supervolcano sitting under Yellowstone National Park in the USA could erupt much faster than expected, potentially wiping out life on the planet, Arizona State University researchers working around the area have said.

Researchers studying at Yellowstone National Park believe a supervolcano resting beneath the popular Wyoming destination could erupt sooner rather than later - and the results could be devastating.

About 630,000 years ago, National Geographic reported, a powerful eruption shook the region and created the Yellowstone caldera, a bowl 40 miles wide that forms much of the park.

It's true that researchers have determined they'll have less warning than previously thought the next time the supervolcano erupts.

The Yellowstone supervolcano could easily change life on our planet for centuries.

The current theory has its origins in a 2013 study that concluded the reservoir is 2.5 times larger than previous estimates, and since it drains after every massive explosion, geologists thought it would take a long time to refill. A 2011 study related to Yellowstone supervolcano, revealed that the ground above the magma reservoir had bulged by about 10 inches in seven years.

Much like reading a set of tree rings, Shamloo and her team were able to record temperature and composition changes by analyzing crystals found beneath the earth's surface. Before that, the eruption occurred around 1.3 million years ago, according to ZME Science. This could mean that the last eruption occurred just decades "after an injection of fresh magma beneath the volcano".

"It's shocking how little time is required to take a volcanic system from being quiet and sitting there to the edge of an eruption", Shamloo told The Times, cautioning that more research is necessary before definite conclusions can be drawn.

The Supreme Court's verdict is said to have impacted almost 400 temporary firecracker license holders and 150 permanent ones. The apex court has also said that it is perturbed by the communal colour given to the order, according to media reports.

Shamloo and Till previously presented their research at a 2016 meeting held by the American Geophysical Union. The lead scientist at the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory tells National Geographic there's no sign of any "magmatic event" at this time.

In June, nearly 400 earthquakes hit the Yellowstone supervolcano, but researchers said that it was not a case of worry.

Yellowstone is one of the most closely watched volcanoes in the world.
