There is no reason to believe Yellowstone will erupt any time in the next century.

About 640,000 thousand years ago was the last time Yellowstone erupted..

Currently, there is no indication that Yellowstone will have a super volcano to erupt. The activity at Yellowstone has remain constant since earth scientists had first started to monitor it over 30 years ago.

No. Contrary to claims that Yellowstone is "overdue" for an eruption, there is no indication of danger.

I consider an eruption in Yellowstone in 2012 VERY unlikely, mostly because it's now 2013.

Yellowstone has erupted both basaltic and rhyolitic magma. The devastating super eruptions involve rhyolitic magma.

Scientists do not know exactly when Yellowstone will erupt. Most likely in a few million years or so (estimate).

Most scientists believe that Yellowstone is not truly active and that they would be able to detect if the Yellowstone volcano was going to erupt years before it erupted. But there is no way to no for sure if the Yellowstone caldera is truly active (building up for an eruption).

This highly controversial question cannot be answered, as the future is uncertain.

It is extremely unlikely. Currently, there is no indication that something is developing.

The first known giant eruption was 2.1 million years ago

Yes. It erupted 3 time in the last 2.1 million years

It didn't. The Yellowstone volcano last erupted about 70,000 years ago. The last super eruption was about 640,000 years ago.

Yellowstone is a super-volcano. It erupts roughly every 600 thousand years, and the last eruption was about 640 thousand years ago, so we are 'overdue'. It is unclear when Yellowstone will erupt, but if it does, it will be quite a terrible event.

No. The last eruption of the Yellowstone volcano was about 70,000 years ago. Its last super eruption was 640,000 years ago.

Scientists do not know when. Contrary to popular belief the volcano does not erupt at regular intervals. Scientists have not monitored the volcano for long enough to get a good idea of its general behavior. However, it is highly unlikely that it will erupt in our lifetimes.

It will erupt for the same reason that all volcanoes erupt: magma is collecting in the magma chamber and pressure is increasing. This will eventually reach a breaking point and result in an eruption. The chances of that occuring in our lifetimes however, are very small.

The Yellowstone national park is under a lava chamber. Its on a super volcano. It will erupt but in the future. It may cover half the United States in ashes.

Yes. It's only a question of when, which is why the supervolcano's caldera is closely monitored.

Scientists say that every 600,000 - 640,000 years , Yellowstone is suppost to erupt . Well it's been atleasts 635,000 years . My hypothesis is that Yellowstone will erupt within the next 25 years . When Yellowstone Erupts , it willl cause massive Tsunami's , Earthquakes , and Land slides . The lava inside it now is about 2000-2500 Degrees F . We do not have a exact date but we do know distance , time , and range . When Yellowstone Erupts 98% of North America is going to die . The state Florida Is at sea level ( 0 Elevation ) . We don't know what would happen to southern Mexcio or Florida . But it will kill 98% of North America

The Yellowstone Caldera was formed in an eruption about 640,000 years ago. Two other major calderas in the the area formed 1.3 million and 2.1 million years ago.

Yosemite National Park does not actually contain a volcano, but Yellowstone National Park does. It is an extremely active volcano, and it is still uncertain when it will erupt again but it has been hundreds of thousands of years.

It erupts about every 92 minutes. The eruption lasts between 1.5 to 5 minutes.

It last erupted 640,000 years ago and is due within the next 50,000 years.
