Geologists from the University of Kobe discovered off the coast of Japan the volcano, which contains 34 cubic kilometers of magma.
The study of Japanese scientists, published in the journal Scientific repots, reports Rus.Media.
Geologists studied the Kika Caldera – the crater of a volcano that spewed lava 7.3 thousand years ago. Then this eruption led to the destruction of civilization in the South of Japan.
According to the studies in this volcano is a dome with a radius of 10 kilometers and a height of 600 meters, filled with magma. In addition, during the research scientists noticed that the dome increases, this is evidenced by the irregularities on the surface of the seabed.

A powerful volcanic eruption can cause a serious tsunami capable of reaching the coast of China and even North and South America.
Also, the air will be thrown a lot of ash that will lead to a “volcanic winter” in some areas of Japan. According to geologists, the eruption of this volcano can “bury” the 100 million people.
