The relationship between volcanic eruptions and climate change: still a conundrum?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A brief historical overview of the problem and a review of the various data bases used in evaluating volcanic events and associated climatic change. The authors appraise the present state of knowledge and highlight some pitfalls involved in using available information. Future directions for study are suggested, including the possibility of 'volcanic winters', or severe eruption-induced coolings. -from Authors
