World's Largest Caldera discovered in the Philippines

Featured Posts

It's official, the Philippines has the earth's largest known caldera.

In a recently-published study, titled "Benham Rise unveiled: Morphology and structure of an Eocene large igneous province in the West Philippine Basin," a group of marine geophysicists found the seismically active underwater region in the Philippine Sea.

----------------

The marine geophysicists group that discovered the existence of the world's largest caldera consists of New Zealand-based Filipino scientist Jenny Anne Barreto, along with co-authors Ray Wood and John Milsom.

The caldera named 'Apolaki,' which means "giant lord," is based on the Filipino mythical god of the sun and war.

The University of Philippines Marine Science Institute states in a Facebook post that Apolaki Caldera has a diameter of roughly 150 kilometers, more than twice the size of Wyoming's Yellowstone Caldera in the U.S. which is only about 60 km.

The caldera is located at the bottom of the Philippine Sea and its, according to the paper's abstract, "features like a breached rim, intra-caldera benches, and a resurgent dome indicate a multi-phase volcanic history consisting of both quiet and explosive eruptions."
