Volcanic Aerosol Radiative Properties
Author and Affiliation:
Lacis, Andrew(NASA Goddard Inst. for Space Studies, New York, NY United States)
Abstract: Large sporadic volcanic eruptions inject large amounts of sulfur bearing gases into the stratosphere which then get photochemically converted to sulfuric acid aerosol droplets that exert a radiative cooling effect on the global climate system lasting for several years.
