Taupo volcano in central North Island, New Zealand, is the most frequently active and productive rhyolite volcano on Earth.
Its latest explosive activity about 1800 years ago generated the spectacular Taupo eruption, the most violent eruption known in the world in the last 5,000 years.
A foot bridge right at the top of the falls puts you in a prime position to get up close and witness the frightening display of more than 220,000 litres of water blasting by every second.
If you'd like to see the power and fury of the falls up close, try a jet boat ride.
However, there have been many more eruptions, with major ones every thousand years or so (see timeline of last 10,000 years of eruptions).If the volcano creates a stable plume, high in the atmosphere, the pumice and ash is blown sideways, and eventually falls to the ground, draping the landscape like snow.One of the leading scientists in his field, Dr Alan Hogg, of the Waikato Radiocarbon Laboratory, is the lead author of a paper that provides a definitive calendar age for the powerful Taupo eruption that occurred about 1,800 years ago.We cater for real New Zealanders who are looking to find genuine partners via online dating.If you're serious about finding that special someone, Matchfinder can help!
