The impact of explosive volcanic eruptions on the North Atlantic climate system

Abstract:

Volcanic eruptions have a variety of impacts on the climate, from short-term reductions in temperature lasting only days, to longer term impacts due to the influence of stratospheric aerosols lasting 2-3 years, and even decadal scale effects arising from the impact on the oceans. Large tropical eruptions have the biggest impact on the stratosphere and have the potential to have long lasting global impacts. These large eruptions allow sulphate aerosols to be formed within the tropical strat...
