Die außergewöhnlichen klimatischen Bedingungen des “Jahres ohne Sommer” 1816 werden größtenteils dem Ausbruch des indonesischen Vulkans Tambora im Jahr 1815 zugeschrieben. In Mitteleuropa und Nordamerika zählt dieser Sommer zu den kältesten und regenreichsten seit Beginn der Wetterbeobachtungen. Sozioökonomische Auswirkungen wie Ernteausfälle und Hungersnöte waren die Folge. Der weitreichende Klimaeffekt durch Vulkane entsteht vor allem durch Schwefelsäureaerosole. Diese bilden sich nach… 



Climatic, environmental and human consequences of the largest known historic eruption: Tambora volcano (Indonesia) 1815

The 1815 eruption of Tambora volcano (Sumbawa island, Indonesia) expelled around 140 gt of magma (equivalent to ≈50 km3 of dense rock), making it the largest known historic eruption. More than 95% by

Aerosol size confines climate response to volcanic super‐eruptions

Extremely large volcanic eruptions have been linked to global climate change, biotic turnover, and, for the Younger Toba Tuff (YTT) eruption 74,000 years ago, near‐extinction of modern humans. One of

Source of the great A.D. 1257 mystery eruption unveiled, Samalas volcano, Rinjani Volcanic Complex, Indonesia

This study argues that the source of this long-sought eruption is Samalas volcano, part of the Mount Rinjani Volcanic Complex on Lombok Island, Indonesia, and gives rise to the existence of a forgotten Pompeii in the Far East.

The volcanic explosivity index (VEI) an estimate of explosive magnitude for historical volcanism

Knowledge of the frequencies of highly explosive, moderately explosive, and nonexplosive eruptions would be useful in a variety of volcano studies. Historical records are generally incomplete,

European Seasonal and Annual Temperature Variability, Trends, and Extremes Since 1500

Multiproxy reconstructions of monthly and seasonal surface temperature fields for Europe back to 1500 show that the late 20th- and early 21st-century European climate is very likely (>95% confidence

Five hundred years of gridded high-resolution precipitation reconstructions over Europe and the connection to large-scale circulation

We present seasonal precipitation reconstructions for European land areas (30°W to 40°E/30–71°N; given on a 0.5°×0.5° resolved grid) covering the period 1500–1900 together with gridded reanalysis

The size and frequency of the largest explosive eruptions on Earth

A compilation and analysis of the size and frequency of the largest known explosive eruptions on Earth are presented. The ‘largest’ explosive events are defined to be those eruptions yielding greater
