The giant Caldera is the product of a major collapse of the crust after 3 so-called ultra-plinian or Super-volcano volcanoes – large explosive events that occur several hundred to several thousand cubic km of magma. These eruptions happened 2.1, 1.3 and 0.64 million years ago.
Yellowstone is also the world’s largest hydrothermal system. It contains 182 Geysers, mud pools and fumaroles. The most famous feature in Yellowstone is old faithful geyser.
