Well, that is another Supervolcano that is overdue. It isn't overdue as much as Yellowstone, but still hundreds of years. But Earth's volcanism is
slowly decaying, and I bet lot of volcanoes are overdue.
Yellostone can't wipe out whole US, but Laacher See can wipe out whole Germany + neighboring countries. And Yellowstone can easily release its
pressure through geysers, but there isn't geysers in Germany
At least now there isn't much seismic activity, I wonder where they take that earthquake activity is on rise. Latest earthquake there was on 19th of
December, but it was shallow, at 8 kilometers, I guess that is in magma chamber. Many volcanoes have magma chamber at that depth. Magnitude was
Too bad they don't have observatory there(?). I would like to see seismograph/heliocorder. You can only predict eruption if you can see harmonics.
