When and Where Will the Next Mega-Volcano Strike?

January 23, 2013 Remembering the Mighty: Pictured above, Lightning streaks across the sky as lava flows from the volcano in Eyjafjallajokul.

Smoke billows from an erupting volcano under the Eyjafjallajokull glacier on April 14, 2010 near the Icelandic capital, Reykjavik.

A volcanic eruption in southern Iceland spewed black smoke and white steam into the air and partially melted a glacier, forcing hundreds to evacuate from the thinly populated area.

Floodwaters rise after the volcano erupts. Scientists said the eruption under the ice cap was 10 to 20 times more powerful than one last month, and carried a much greater risk of widespread flooding.

The eruption caused a major transportation disaster in Europe and other areas. And this was from a small eruption. What would a big one do! We have recently seen mega-quakes and tsunamis in Sumatra, Indonesia on December 2, 2004 and Honshu, Japan on March 11, 2011. Is the world overdue for a mega-volcanic eruption? If so, when and where will the disaster strike? (Credits: Photos – Reuters and AP, Narrative – The London Financial Times & W. G. Foster).

    I will go for Mt Baekdu


    100 cm rise in the height of the mountain over the past 10 years,.Increase in lake temperature.
    VEI 7 last big time round (~960). 2 billions tons of water waiting to meet some hot magma. Nuclear power plants nearby. Nice combination don’t you think?!

      Great story line. I will look into this one.

      If this one blows, it could spell real trouble. On the North Korea/China border, this 9,003 foot monster would be a world changer. It’s also known as Changbai Mountain, Baitouo, Changbaishan, Baitoushan and Paektu if anyone is looking for it by name.
      Thanks for the update,
