Presumably, the eruption of this volcano 40 thousand years ago led to the extinction of the Neanderthals.
Italian and French employees have said about the future activity of the volcano, located near to Naples.
Corresponding message of the scientists was published in the journal Nature Communications.
Experts emphasized that near the Phlegraean fields to the North-West of Naples recorded awakening volcano. The activity of magma in a large valley could harm millions of Italians. If its level will be close to a critical point, then in time the eruption of the volcano. Scientists at the moment are afraid to make a prediction of the possible consequences that may arise as a result of revival of the system of volcanoes, located near Naples.
Naples Caldera was formed not long ago by the standards of seismologists. According to experts, the last activity at this site was estimated at about 39 thousand years ago. This, in turn, was the strongest eruption for 200 thousand years, and could lead to the extinction of the Neanderthals. The last SUPERVOLCANO eruption occurred in 1538, but it can be much weaker than the impending activity. When and in what part of Naples that happens, scientists can not yet predict.
