Recently, researchers uncover that small volcanic eruption have cut the global warming in last six years.
The volcanic eruptions play an essential role in reduction of greenhouse effect up to 50 percent. These types of reductions have increased the proportion of global warming in past few years. However, it has also slashed down the level of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Experts of Massachusetts Institute of Technology utilized laser radars, balloons and other ground based measurements for this research. They carefully analyzed the affect of vaporized particles. Later on, they concluded that numerous volcanic eruptions have decreased the heat of the Earth up to 0.05 degrees to 0.12 degrees in last 15 years.
For instance, scientists observed that the outburst of Indonesia’s Mount Tambora gave birth to cold weather in 1816. The year is commonly known as “a year without summer”. It marked a new history in the climate of Earth.
The study explains that ash and gases released from volcanoes considerably block the solar radiations. These ashes contain sulfur dioxide that creates a kind of obstruction in solar radiations. Solar radiation is considered as one of the major causes of production of heat in the climate.
Furthermore, the new report shows that comparatively small volcanic eruption can also restrict the amount of greenhouse gases.
