Calderas form during massive explosve volcanic eruptions. In such eruptions so much material is expelled that it leaves a large empty space under the volcano. The volcano then collapses into this space, forming a giant crater.

A caldera forms during an exceptionally violent volcanic eruption. Extremely large explosive eruptions can drain massive quantities of molten rock from the magma chamber beneath the volcano. The volcano then collapses into the space left behind, forming a depression called a caldera.
