Category:VEI-8 volcanoes

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Volcanoes that have produced explosive VEI-8 eruptions, often called supervolcanoes in the media. Such volcanic eruptions release a tephra volume of at least 1,000 km3 (240 cu mi) with annihilating long-term effects on the surrounding area and devastating short-term effects on the global climate, leaving profound effects on the climate for years to come.

For smaller volcanoes that have erupted at least 100 km3 (24 cu mi) of tephra at a time, see Category:VEI-7 volcanoes.
