Incomplete contents:
The vast and scenic Lake taupo is not always recognised as a volcano. The Taupo volcano represents a major scientific challenge, in that its activity is so variable. In the last 50,000 years, Taupo has had eruptions which vary in volume from 0.001 km3 to over 800 km3. Some eruptions have produced ignimbrites, others fall deposits, and other have extruded lava domes. (auths/NJT)
