The climatic toll of volcanic eruptions

Volcanic eruptions over the last 1,000 years have exacted a heavy influence on global climate, according to a new study led by researchers at the University at Albany. The impact is felt most dramatically near the equator, where eruptions have led to reduced rainfall in both the summer monsoon and winter seasons, as well as a cooling trends across entire continents.
