The Greatest Eruption in Human History: Mount Tambora

On April 10, 1815, the Indonesian volcano of Mount Tambora exploded in the largest eruption in recorded history.

On the Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI), a classification system akin to the scale used to rate earthquakes, the Tambora eruption rate a VEI-7. The scale runs from 1 to 8, with each number being approximately 10 times more powerful than the previous one. There haven't been any VEI-8s in the last 10,000 years. The Tambora eruption killed at least 88,000 people.

The massive eruption heard on Sumatra Island, more than 1,200 miles (1,930 km) away spewed an estimated 36 cubic miles (150 cubic kilometers) of tephra exploded rock and ash into the air. Ash from the eruption was recognized at least 808 miles (1,300 km) away to the northwest, according to a NASA statement.



So much ash was injected into the Earth's atmosphere and circulated by upper-level currents that it blocked some of the sun's rays, causing global temperatures to lower and making 1816 the so-called "year without a summer."

TSUNAMI ALERT ISSUED AFTER POWERFUL QUAKE HITS OFF INDONESIA
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/

A tsunami alert was issued for the entire Indian Ocean Wednesday after a powerful 8.7-magnitude earthquake was recorded off Indonesia's coast.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was centered 20 miles beneath the ocean floor and 308 miles from the provincial capital of Banda Aceh at 2:38 p.m. local time (3:38 am. ET).


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The quake is in a similar location and of a similar magnitude to the 9.1-magnitude tremor on Dec. 26, 2004 that triggered a tsunami in the Indian Ocean, killing 230,000 people, nearly three-quarters of them in Aceh province.
