Lake Taupo

A Supervolcano's Colossal Eruption Has Been Lying About Its Age

The most violent eruption of the last 5,000 years was undoubtedly that of Taupo, a volcanic cauldron found in New Zealand. It's still an active volcanic system, so the more we know about it the better—but the exact age of that eruption has proved to be a puzzle for scientists.The most precise dating methods had pegged it as happening in or close to the year 232. A recent Nature Communications study, using a rather clever dating method, has revealed that this devastating eruption occurred potentially hundreds of years more recently.
