A Supervolcano is a volcano characterized by the large area it affects. A supervolcano is generally accepted to be a volcano that discharges ash, lava, or pumis deposits that spread over 240 or more cubic miles from its center. The Indonesian Toba is an example of a supervolcano.
Yes. In fact, Yellowstone National Park is a supervolcano.
No. Krakatoa as produced some very large eruptions, but it falls short of a supervolcano.
Inevitably, the Yellowstone caldera will explode as a supervolcano. Whether that will happen soon is unlikely.
The Yellowstone Supervolcano.
its a supervolcano
By not being anywhere near it.
No. It is a caldera.
No. Old Faithful is a geyser. However, it and the other geysers and hot springs of Yellowstone are the result of heat generated by a supervolcano.
No. The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa did kill about 36,000 people. Although this eruptions was extremely large, Krakatoa is not a supervolcano.

Half of the population in the area around the supervolcano is likely to die and the results are not that harsh. There will only be heavy clouds of ash which will make it hard to grow crops so you will need to stock up food and if a supervolcano is predicted when it will explode, there will be a chance were the whole area will have to evacuate.
A supervolcano is on average 500,000 times bigger than a normal volcano. To give an exmaple, the Yellowstone supervolcano, when it erupts will shoot 60,000 times more ash into the air and the ash will cover the globe. The next Yellowstone supervolcano is 30,000 year overdue.
No. A supervolcano is a volcano that is capable of producing extremely large explosive eruptions. Kilauea is a shield volcano. Most of its eruptions are non-explosive or only mildly explosive.
It is in the northwest corner of Wyoming.
Yes. Much of Yellowstone is in the caldera of a supervolcano.
When a supervolcano erupts it drains many cubic kilometers of magma from the magma chamber. The caldera forms when the ground collapses into the space left behind in the magma chamber.
No. It is in Yellowstone National Park. There are no cities in Yellowstone.
There is one supervolcano under Yellowstone.
Yellowstone Caldera Supervolcano - the one by which all others are judged.
The strongest kind of volcanic eruption is from a supervolcano.
