Figure 1: Lake Taupo, New Zealand, in the caldera of the Taupo Volcano. The Taupo volcano has produced some of the largest eruptions of the Holocene, including eruptions around 233 CE and 1460 BCE. In the background, the active volcano Mount Ngauruhoe is visible - the film location of "Mount Doom" in "The Lord of the Rings" movies, which last erupted in the 20th century.
