Original Message That Antarctica has multiple volcanic domes, and the temperature and winds this past December have broken all previous records.

Two British researchers contend that a volcano violently erupted around 2,000 years ago and blew a large hole through the ice sheet in West Antarctic at around the year 207 B.C., and scientists confirm it was the largest volcanic eruption in Antarctica over the last 10,000 years.

Some other scientific journals point to 325 BC.
