The Supervolcano under yellowstone is meant to go off between 600,000 and 700,000 years and we are currently on 640,000 years.
Scientists are giving example of increases gas escaping to the surface, increase in ground temperature, new geasers, deaths of animals through carbon
dioxide poisening and the increase in height of the lands in yellowstone.
However these events are known to have been going on for the last 10,000 years without a supervolcano errupting.
Another fact of interest is that the magma chamber under yellowstone is roughly equal to the size of 3
New York City's, however the magma
chamber includes solid rock as well as liquid rock.
I'm surprised I remembered all that
