Researchers, led by University of Houston professor William Sager, have been able to confirm the existence of the world’s largest single volcano at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, according to an upcoming report in Nature Geoscience.

Called Tamu Massif, the volcano covers an area about the size of the British Isles. Without a similar volcano here on Earth, scientists are comparing to it giant volcanoes on Mars and ranking it among the biggest known in the Solar System.
