Hi ATS, Here you go.. this is truely a news which would stikr fear into every one's heart. Two continent-sized new Super-super volcano is growing in the Pacific.






Scientists have confirmed that two continent-sized chemical blobs of partially melted rock are converging in the Pacific, and look set to create a massive new volcano, which could prove cataclysmic to life on Earth. Geologist Michael Thorne at the University of Utah reports in Earth and Planetary Science that the collision is slowly happening 1,800 miles beneath the ocean.


scientist knew about the location of these magmatic reservoirs since the 1990s and said nothing of them.

The problem is that two enormous "thermochemical piles" of molten rock about 3,000 miles across are moving towards each other at the bottom of the Earth's mantle.

As per them the process is too slow - it shouldn't happen for another 100 million years or so.

Extinction-level


Assuming organisms on earth will still exist in 100 million years.

Otherwise, it will just be a supervolcano eruption.

If a supervolcano erupts on earth and no one exists to witness it - does it make a sound?

Interesting topic.
But the interpretations made by the source (theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com) are to be taken with a pinch of something.

Thanks for bringing this up anyway.

But it's in 200 million years. Regardless of anything, mankind will probably be extinct already or will have went forth and multiplied across at least *some* of the known universe.

Find me a proper source and then we talk about it.

edit: found other sources... 100 million years? we will have destroyed ourself at that point

I noticed none of the images offered by the op are photos.

Information about a supervolcano without solid graphic evidence.

Deny.........., remember?

If we haven't colonized space by then we deserve to be extinct.

The deepest part of the ocean the Mariana trench is only 7 miles deep. This sounds like a crock o you know what to me. 1800 miles deep. Give me a freaking break. And you people give him stars and flags. Google is your friend. Find some things out first.

I will star it in 100 million years

That part was where the molten rock is forming below the ocean, as in, under the earths crust and down in the earth's mantle which is what the 1800 mile depth is about....

Yup, you just gotta love posters who jump to attack the OP before they even thoroughly read the information provided...

The original source comes from the University of Utah.

A couple little snippets:


Feb. 7, 2013 – A University of Utah seismologist analyzed seismic waves that bombarded Earth’s core, and believes he got a look at the earliest roots of Earth’s most cataclysmic kind of volcanic eruption. But don’t worry. He says it won’t happen for perhaps 200 million years.

[snip]

The new study, set for publication this week in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters, indicates that two or more continent-sized “piles” of rock are colliding as they move at the bottom of Earth’s thick mantle and atop the thicker core some 1,800 miles beneath the Pacific. That is creating a Florida-sized zone of partly molten rock that may be the root of either of two kinds of massive eruptions far in the future.

100 million years?hopefully credit card should be paid by then

Nice post AncietSoul


Super volcanoes freak me out ever since I saw a show on Discovery about Krakatoa, so I'm glad I won't be around when this one decides to pop off....unless reincarnation actually exists and I just happen to return in 100 million years


Starred & Flagged

P.S. Don't worry about the thread haters. I thought your post was a good example for future posters, had credentials, and not at all misleading in the title. Any good writer knows to make the title interesting enough to get their audience's attention

Agreed! Unfortunately there are members of ATS who would rather be argumentative, than taking the time to read thoroughly what is presented by the OP and then post a reply.

Some how, I just know man's going to be blamed for this.

That's a lot of reincarnations from now. I'm just worried I may get kicked back to a frog next time, a million years is too long to worry about.

For sure! I'm hoping to be a human again once the powers that be have finally fallen
I have high hopes for the future of earth and mankind
