Obviously, volcanic eruptions affect climate: emit huge amounts of sulfur dioxide, which then reflects the sun's rays, cooling the planet in a few years. But it turns out the opposite is happening: the periods of warming, following the period of glaciation, can lead to more frequent eruptions.

Small rounded hills - education center of the volcano - about 50 meters high, 1,200 meters long and 500 meters high, is located along the spine of Alarcon. Tectonic forces break the crust in the center of the formation of the volcano, creating an elongated cleft, which tends to surface magma cools and forms new ocean floor topography.

Geologist Michael Thorne of the University of Utah, says that at the bottom of the Earth's mantle is the convergence of two "thermochemical piles," the size of a continent each. This process, occurring at a depth of 2,900 kilometers under the surface of the Pacific Ocean, can lead to a massive eruption that would cause massive destruction on Earth.
Scientists suggest that the supervolcano eruption will happen no earlier than 100 or even 200 million years. Findings will be published researcher in the February issue of the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters, said portal IO9.
