A Martian puzzle: is this a supervolcano or an impact crater?

New images may be posing more questions than they answer.

Supervolcano eruptions might be more common than we thought — but there’s still no need to panic

If it happens, it happens — there’s not that much we can do about it.

Volcanoes are some of the most amazing geological features but quite often, they’re misunderstood or not understood at all. Here we’ll get to know them a bit better, starting with the basic facts and the moving onto cool and surprising facts, and of course, continuing with everyone’s favorite (from a distance): eruptions.

Yellowstone is a supervolcano of perplexing size, but as Utah seismologists found… it may actually be even bigger than previously thought.

Series of earthquakes strike Yellowstone

Seismologists working at the University of Utah reported an earthquake occurring at 06:34 AM on March 30, 2014 (MDT).

A supervolcano This was not a singular event, but was a part of a series of earthquakes that began in

Swarm of earthquakes shake Yellowstone National Park

Could the Yellowstone supervolcano be waking up? In his 53 years of monitoring seismic activity in and around the Yellowstone Caldera, Bob Smith has never witnessed two simultaneous earthquake swarms; now, the Utah University geophysicist has seen not two, but three such swarms. “It’s very remarkable,” Smith said. “How does one swarm relate to another? Can one swarm trigger another
