  • 9. History This volcano was discovered in 1980 The three super eruptions occurred 2.1 million, 1.3 million, and 640,000 years ago, forming the Island Park Caldera, the Henrys Fork Caldera, and Yellowstone calderas, respectively. Within the past 17 million years, 142 or more caldera-forming eruptions have occurred from the Yellowstone hotspot. Due to the volcanic and tectonic nature of the region, the Yellowstone Caldera experiences between 1000 and 2000 measurable earthquakes a year, though most are relatively minor, with a magnitude of 3 or weaker.
