Intense boreal forest fires in August 2017 caused smoke plumes that reached record levels in the stratosphere; satellite measurements show that the effects rivaled a moderate volcanic eruption.
High levels of carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide emitted by volcanic outgassing caused a deadly accident near Rome, Italy, in 2011, geoscientists have shown.
Humanity’s carbon emissions are, by far, the largest disturbance to Earth’s steady state carbon cycle.
A new model of the Laki eruption in Iceland suggests that normal climate variability was to blame for the anomalously warm summer.
Control theory and climate engineering meet in a new special issue of JGR: Atmospheres.
Ice cores and glacial records reveal that European glaciers retreated before the rise of industrialization in the 1870s, suggesting that soot deposition did not primarily drive the shift.
A National Academies report highlights challenges and opportunities in volcano science.
Ice cores and ancient river records suggest that volcanic eruptions may have reduced the flow of the Nile River. Failures of the Nile floods that usually irrigated Egypt’s farms could have fed social unrest.
