A volcanic super-eruption is capable of returning modern society to a 'pre-civilization state.' Researchers now say that the devastating event could happen sooner than expected.

Layers of ash found in the Santa Barbara Basin, in California suggest that the Yellowstone supervolcano erupted two times more than 6 million years ago. What happened as a result of these super eruptions?

Researchers reveal decades, not centuries, of waiting for supervolcano eruption once critical changes in Yellowstone begin. Here's what could happen should a supervolcano eruption occur.

A supervolcano currently lies dormant underneath the Yellowstone National Park. If it decides to wake up, we will have much less time to prepare for a disastrous volcanic eruption than researchers previously thought.

The magma source, or hot zone, of Campi Flegrei in Italy suggests that the supervolcano may erupt soon. Scientists said the volcano is now like a boiling pot of soup beneath the surface.

The Campi Flegrei volcano in Italy which caused Europe's largest volcanic eruption shows signs it could blow up again. What happens when supervolcanoes such as Camp Flegrei and Yellowstone erupt?

The volcanic eruption that formed the Campi Flegrei caldera 39,000 years ago is the largest in the history of Europe. Is the supervolcano under Naples in Italy about to erupt again?

A car may boost the odds of survival once a volcanic eruption occurs. Findings of a new study suggest that deadly pyroclastic flows travel at speeds ranging from 10 to 45 miles per hour.

New computer model undermines popular theories about Yellowstone Supervolcano's origins. The common belief is that it was formed from a mantle plume but new study says otherwise.

Scientists warned that if the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts, it could wipe out majority of the United States. 90,000 could be killed and rescue operations would be impossible to deploy as the affected area would be in a state of volcanic winter. Chances of a volcanic eruption are, however, very slim.

The European Space Agency has released images of massive craters on the surface of Mars that are believed to have been created by supervolcanoes.

A magma reservoir feeding a chamber under the Yellowstone supervolcano has been discovered. Could this mean an eruption is near?

Scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey are investigating the potential effects on the environment if the newly discovered supervolcano at Yellowstone National Park were to suddenly erupt.

A magma chamber with enough material to fill the Grand Canyon 14 times over has been found beneath the Yellowstone supervolcano, researchers say. The finding yields insights into the 'plumbing' system feeding the giant caldera.

Yellowstone National Park has some of the most stunning hot springs in the world. This is the history of the national landmark.

A Yellowstone eruption could blanket the whole of North America with ash and cause a winter during the summer months. It's unlikely to happen anytime soon, but a new computer model shows just how wide an area the eruption would impact.

Computer models show a supervolcano in Yellowstone could cover the entire U.S. with ash. Eruption would "create its own winds" and spread ash from coast to coast, researchers say.

The UK is facing a ticking time bomb far worse than the human-induced catastrophes of nuclear warfare and terrorism to its locals. With the revelation of a latest study, the authorities are preparing for the worst.
