• The Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI) ranks volcano eruptions by size and power.
  • The scale goes from VEI-0 to VEI-8 and procedures ash, lava, and rock ejected.
  • VEI-1 is a mild eruption that can occur regularly. Italy’s Mt. Stromboli has actually been appearing practically constantly for 2,000 years.
  • VEI-6s are enormous eruptions every 100 years. The 1883 surge of Krakatoa was the most well-known of these.

Earth has actually had a remarkable history, filled with its share of mad outbursts. Here’s how the biggest volcanic eruptions determine up.

The Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI) ranks eruptions by size and power. The scale goes from VEI-0 to VEI-8. It determines ash, lava, and rock ejected.

VEI-0 are generally a consistent drip of lava rather of a surge. An example is the Hawaiian volcano of Kīlauea.

Next is VEI-1, a mild eruption that can occur regularly. Italy’s Mt. Stromboli has actually been appearing practically constantly for 2,000 years.

VEI-2s include numerous moderate surges a month. Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung has actually been appearing because 2013.

VEI-3 are disastrous eruptions that occur every couple of months. Lassen Peak in Northern California had a VEI-3 in 1915.

VEI-4s occur about every other year. In 2010, Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull grounded countless flights.

At VEI-5 things begin getting more remarkable. Both Mt. Vesuvius (79 ADVERTISEMENT) and Mt. St. Helens (1980) were VEI-5s.

VEI-6s are enormous eruptions every 100 years. The 1883 surge of Krakatoa was the most well-known of these.

VEI-7 eruptions take place every 1,000 years. The most current was Indonesia’s Mt. Tambora in 1815.

VEI-8 is a terrible explosive eruption every 50,000 years. The Yellowstone Caldera would reach this level if it were to emerge.

Let’s all simply keep our cool.
