Yellowstone is an excellent example of a supervolcano and was formed as a result of a volcanic hotspot. Over the course of the last 3 million years there have been three huge eruptions, the last one being around 630,000 years ago which caused the ground to collapse, creating a depression called a caldera measuring 55 km by 80 km wide. The next eruption at Yellowstone is predicted to have severe worldwide climate effects. Another interesting volcanic feature of Yellowstone are geysers such as the famous Old Faithful where visitors flock to see it erupt boiling water up to 56 m in the air.

Hawaii is a good place to study past climates because of its glaciers as the formation, size and movement of glaciers reflects current and historic changes in temperature and precipitation.
