Comet/Meteor Strike and Volcanism...

Good afternoon all,

Just wondering if a large scale comet/meteor strike would set off nearby/faraway volcanoes? Any thoughts?

I would think a lage Meteor smashing into the earth causing plates to shift would cause something of the magnitude. That would have to be one hell of a rock though.

The coincidence of the impact which killed the dinosaurs and the creation of the Deccan Flats is interesting.

There’s also speculation of a strike during the Siberian Traps events around the time of the Permian extinction.

Thank you for the quick and informative responses!

One would think that volcanic eruptions would be the least of people’s worries. A “large scale comet/meteor strike” would probably have more global, and permanent consequences.

Well…at this point I am only looking at the late Pleistocene/early Holocene for this scenario…strictly background to a mostly fictional novel…plenty of great info while Googling though! Thanks

These aren’t just garden variety volcanic eruptions:
