NOAA celebrated the 200th birthday of Eunice Newton Foote, hidden climate science pioneer and suffragette, whose research foreshadowed the discovery of Earth’s greenhouse effect.

Spatial Distribution of Sulfate from Volcanic Eruptions Influences Global Climate Impact 19 July 2019

Spatial Distribution of Sulfate from Volcanic Eruptions Influences Global Climate Impact

A research team funded by the Climate Program Office’s Climate Observations and Monitoring Program has published a new paper describing how the distribution of a volcanic eruption’s dispersal of sulfate aerosols impacts components of the climate system on regional and global scales. The paper, published online June 20, 2019 in Geophysical Research Letters, is entitled “Climate Impacts From Large Volcanic Eruptions in a High-Resolution Climate Model: The Importance of Forcing Structure.”
