The largest volcano in the world


The volcano Tamu Massif has been discovered by Professor William Sager of the University of Houston, which has been studying this volcano for nearly 20 years and has proved that Tamo Masif is the world's largest volcano, with a total area of ​​120,000 square miles, That is about the size of New Mexico. The volcano is located in the Pacific Ocean 1,600 kilometers east of Japan, with a peak of almost 2,000 meters below sea level, estimated to be about 145 million years old. During the late Jurassic and early Cretaceous period, the volcano erupted from volcanic lava from the center of the volcano to its cold, layer-by-side facades. Tamo Masif's activity ceased after millions of years of its formation.
