23 (2): Volcanoes and Climate

Eds: LeGrande AN, Anchukaitis KJ, von Gunten L & Goodwin L

Past Global Changes Magazine, vol. 23(2), 41-84, 2015


Number of pages: 44

This issue of Past Global Changes Magazine: Volcanoes and Climate highlights how volcanic eruptions represent some of the most climatically important and societally disruptive short-term events in human history. It focuses on the history, processes, and consequences of large eruptions and how they affect the climate system.
