Answer: Option 1


A 'Caldera' is a cauldron-like volcanic feature usually formed by the collapse of land following a volcanic eruption. They are sometimes confused with volcanic craters. The world comes from Spanish Caldera and the Latin word Caldaria, meaning 'cooking pot'. A collapse is triggered by the emptying of the magma chamber beneath the volcano, usually as the result of a large volcanic eruption.
