Cooling and Warming from Volcanic Eruptions

New!

From: A Brief History of the Earth's Climate

$2.20

This chapter is about why we have volcanic eruptions, how they differ in style and in size and why that’s important, and how they affect the Earth’s climate both on a short time scale– as was the case in 1258 and 1259– and on a much longer time scale.
