    A supervolcano hidden in a veritable mega-volcano nursery called the Eduardo Avaroa Caldera Complex, located in the inhospitable Puna-Altiplano region near the tri-section of Argentina, Bolivia, and Chile is a major focus of many volcano experts in recent days.

    The harmonic tremor is appreciating in a cyclical way. There are signs of trouble ahead. An extrapolation in the time axis points to a possible mega eruption in 2012.

    I can't remember why but I'm sure I remember India Daily being an unreliable and untrustworthy news source. A quick google search hasn't found any similar stories elsewhere so I'd take this with a pinch of salt.

    It's not completely bogus, but like most other science articles from Indiadaily, it's old news that's hyped up and made to look like yet another apocalypse (Indiadaily loves apocalyses).

    Hmm, didn't the mayan calendar also end some kind of cycle in 2012 as well?

    Did anyone ever see that movie called Supervolcano? I think it was possibly made by Discovery Channel or something like that. My geology prof showed it to scare us. It was actually a pretty decent show.
