Calm place might erupt (10)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

phlegmatic

Here is my best explanation:

'calm' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'place might erupt' is the subsidiary indication.

'erupt' is an anagram indicator.

'place'+'might'='placemight'

'placemight' with letters rearranged gives 'phlegmatic'.

(Other definitions for phlegmatic that I've seen before include "dull and lifeless", "Calm; philosophical", "Unemotional", "cool" and "Unexcitable".)
