Yellowstone magma chamber
The Yellowstone Caldera is the volcanic caldera and supervolcano located in Yellowstone National Park in the United States, sometimes referred to as the Yellowstone Supervolcano. The caldera is located in the northwest corner of Wyoming, in which the vast majority of the park is contained. The major features of the caldera measure about 34 by 45 miles (55 by 72 km). The caldera formed during the last of three supereruptions over the past 2.1 million years. First came the Huckleberry Ridge eruption 2.1 million years ago, which created the Island Park Caldera and the Huckleberry Ridge Tuff. Next came the Mesa Falls eruption 1.3 million years ago, which created the Henry's Fork Caldera and the Mesa Falls Tuff. Finally came the Lava Creek eruption 640,000 years ago, which created the Yellowstone Caldera and the Lava Creek Tuff.

Terra Forming Terra: Scale of Yellowstone Magma Chamber Clarified
A back of the envelop calculation tells us that we are describing ten to twenty thousand cubic kilometers of basaltic flow potential that easily conform to the known flows that cover thousands of square miles and are a mile thick in places and are well known as the Snake River Basalts. It should be clear that even a small eruption is going to be a mess and we already know what a big one looks like.

Yellowstone Park’s Volcano Larger Than Thought – But No Eruption Soon « Set You Free News
By Erik Derr | Latino Post The volcanic system underneath Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming is apparently a lot bigger than previously believed, said researchers during a presentation at the annual meeting of the Seismological Society of America. Computer models of Yellowstone’s dormant volcano indicate the magma chamber beneath the surface is a continuous space, not separate chambers, and that the space is about 50 percent larger that scientists expected.

Yellowstone's megavolcano is more terrifying than we ever imagined
A seismology student from the University of Utah is claiming that the volume of molten magma beneath Yellowstone is 50% larger than previously thought. Given that the caldera could blow up at anytime and with little warning, that's a pretty scary thought.
