GNS:Volcanoes (3884 words)
Taupo is not a large mountain because the eruptions have been so explosive that all material has been deposited far from the vent and subsequent collapse of the ground has formed a caldera (a collapsed volcano).
It is thought a new batch of magma rose high in the crust as the material erupted after Oruanui has a different composition, and was much hotter.
Swarms of small earthquakes that have regularly shaken Taupo in historical times appear to be associated with fault lines and the ongoing subsidence and widening of the region rather than the movement of magma.
