Volcanic eruption is one of the most important factors influencing global climate.Intensive volcanic activities may produce a lot of volcanic cash vapor and H2SO4 gases,which cause the reduction of solar radiation,and further result in lowering the temperature and influencing the precipitation.Geological records reveal that cold climate has a close link with volcanic eruptions.The models based on lots of observations show that the areas around volcano,even over global scale,should be having a lower temperature in one or several years after the eruptions.Researches also indicate that the effects of strong volcanic eruptions are more important than those of greenhouse gases.
