Pangaea was on my mind, but didn't seem to fit your well-thought-out description.

Nice Q, Philip. :clap:

Since I recently went to see Pompeii at the movies, and I remember from my Latin days that the Roman poet Pliny observed the eruption of Vesuvius firsthand, I'll guess that the plinian eruption is probably the most violent. (If there had been a Krakatoan description, it certainly would have been that instead.)

:) Yes OWN. :thumbs_up:

"Plinian eruptions are the strongest of these four eruption types. Huge amounts of gas and fragmented lava come from the vent, raising an eruption column that can reach the stratosphere and cause heavy ash-fall for great distances around the volcano. This eruption type is named for Pliny the Elder, who died while studying the great eruption of Vesuvius that destroyed Pompeii in the year 79. The Pinatubo eruption of July 1991 was of this type".
