Naples Caldera Poised to Pop?

A new study on the Campi Flegrei caldera located near Naples, Italy  suggests that the monstrous supervolcano may erupt sooner than  scientists previously expected.

Although the enormous volcano has not erupted in almost 500 years,  researchers say that a series of earthquakes at the site over the last  few decades may spawn just such an event.

According to new research from seismologists, the relatively recent  activity at Campi Flegrei has resulted in a considerable amount of  energy building up in the crust at the site.

Their findings upend the previous scientific belief that earthquakes at  volcanic locations were beneficial because they allowed for energy at  the site to be released.
