According to Geologist, Super Volcano if explodes could threaten most of Ecuador’s population

Posted on September 5, 2016 • Filed under: Ecuador, Enviromental Issues, Weather/Climate

Scientist Theofilos Toulkeridis Greek origin, has shared the results of scientific research in the Journal of Sciences Security and Defence, same that have been published on the website of the University of the Armed Forces of Ecuador (ESPE).

This is an investigation that discloses the potential damage that would mean a revival of Chalupas super volcano located in Ecuador.

According to Toulkeridis, you can predict that Ecuador will no longer have human life after the next explosion of this Andean volcano that threatens the entire planet earth.

But before you panic, know that Chalupas, a super volcano located in the province of Cotopaxi and was discovered in February 1980, barely a 6% chance that reactivates in this century, according Toulkeridis.

It is also estimated that its last eruption was about 200,000 years ago.

According to the document, on the planet there are about three dozen of these super volcanoes, whose eruptions can potentially harm life on earth.

His strength and the amount of ash that would expel the air would eventually kill plants and animals a few kilometers away; in addition, they are able to alter the climate of the entire planet.

How is Chalupas?

An erruption of Chalupas would almost entirely destroy most of the current population of Ecuador. In fact only 5% at most could survive together with the population of the Galapagos, the statement said.

Chalupas is located in the southern part southeast of the Cotopaxi volcano, 60 kilometers from Quito.

It has a diameter between 15 to 20 kilometers and is mostly flat. In the center of the caldera is a volcanic cone called Quilindaña, with a height of 4,878 meters.

A catastrophe like the volcanic eruption Chalupas equivalent to the fall of a meteorite.

Know what are the major super volcanoes on the planet:

* Lake Toba, Sumatra, Indonesia – 75,000 years ago (2800 km³).
* Caldera Yellowstone, Wyoming, United States – 2.2 million years ago (2500 km³) and 640,000 years (1000 km³).
* La Garita Caldera, Colorado, United States – 27 million years ago (5000 km³)
* Volcano Taupo, North Island of New Zealand – 26,500 years ago (1170 km³)
* Aira Caldera, Kyushu, Japan – 22,000 years ago (110 km³)
* Mount Aso, Kyushu, Japan – 300,000 and 80,000 years ago (total volume of 600 cubic kilometers)
* Laacher See, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany – 12,900 years ago (300 km³)
* Fields Flegrei, Campania, Italy – 40,000 years ago (200 km)
* Kikai Caldera, Ryukyu Islands, Japan – 6300 years (maximum volume of 150 km³)
* Volcano Taupo, North Island, New Zealand – year 181 (100 km³)
* Caldera Diamante, Argentina-Chile – 500,000 years ago (260 km³)
* Long Valley Caldera, California, United States – 760,000 years ago (600 km³)
* Valle Grande, New Mexico, United States – 1.12 billion years ago (about 600 km³)
Bruneau-Jarbidge *, Idaho, United States – 10-12 million years ago (more than 250 cubic kilometers).
* Valle de Anton, Panama – 10,000 years ago.
* Cerro Machin, Department of Tolima, Colombia. Cyclicality of explosive events approximately every 800 years. Read Article on Teleamazonas –

A super-volcano has been recognized in Ecuadorian soil called Barges. this volcano
It manifested with massive ignimbrite deposits, located at various sites in the country. A
reactivation of this volcano could result in the minimum emission of ash expelled a
volume of 575 km3 and a minimum volume of magma erupted about
230 km3, having a Volcanic Explosivity Index of moderate to high 7. Chance
a revival in the XXI century is estimated about 0.1 to 6%. The potential damage with a
future reactivation of this super-volcano is incalculable.
Sloops, super-volcano, volcanic explosivity index, mass destruction,
nuclear winter
Twice in the history of the recent past, Homo Sapiens was on the verge of extinction
due to volcanic explosions. It is the explosion of Lake Taupo in New
Zealand, which 23,000 years ago expelled ash thousand times more than any explosions
the twentieth century, and cooled for several years around the globe. A previous eruption, 70,000 years ago,
It was even worse. The eruption of Toba volcano in Sumatra, darkened planet Earth for several
years. The nuclear winter that followed this catastrophe has reduced the population of humans
few thousand, as we know today, because DNA research among other findings
archaeological. The only volcanoes that can generate a global catastrophe called super-
volcanos. There are about three dozen of these super-active volcanoes in the world, and one of them is
in Ecuador, in the province of Cotopaxi. It is called Barges.
Behavior of Super-volcanoes
Such super-type volcanoes or mega-volcano caldera, are not noticed at first sight because they
lack the typical volcanic peak such as Fuji, Misti or Cotopaxi, and so are left out
the perception of their potential danger for the people who live near or even above
these giants. After a rash and emptying a huge magma chamber is
are similar to valleys or nearly flat boilers morphologies.
