Figure 13

Magnitude versus maximum intensity for all eruptions with a recorded intensity in the database. Contour lines show the duration required to erupt a given mass at a given intensity. The Younger Toba Tuff eruption is excluded because of the disputed column height used to calculate the intensity. Uncertainties on magnitude and intensity are typically of order half an order of magnitude or less as discussed in the text.
