|Wikimedia Commons has media related to VEI-8 volcanoes.|
Volcanoes that have produced explosive VEI-8 eruptions, often called supervolcanoes in the media. Such eruptions release a volume of at least 1000 cubic kilometers with annihilating longterm effects on the surrounding area and devastating shortterm effects on global climate, leaving profound effects on the climate for years to come.
For smaller volcanoes that have erupted at least 100 cubic kilometers at a time, see Category:VEI-7 volcanoes.
No VEI-8 eruption has occurred in recorded human history.
