YELLOW STONE'S VOLCANO

Yellow stone has one of the most deadliest volcanoes ever. It killed nearly 60% of YELLOW STONE'S population. About half of that is people missing. YELLOW STONE'S population includes about 8000 people. THAT IS A LOT OF PEOPLE!!!

HOW THE VOLCANO WAS FORMED

The volcano was formed by divergent plate movements beneath the crust. When the plates move apart the magma will come up and it starts to form new crust

that will pile higher and higher until the convergent plate movement goes into play. Convergent plate movement causes volcanic eruptions so two types of plate movement come into play.

THE NAME

Some people call the volcano THE SUPER VOLCANO, but some people call it THE CALDERA VOLCANO, so you can call it what ever you want to call it.
