  5. 10. Vulkanisk inverkan på klimatet och atmosfärcirkulationen : en litteraturstudie som jämför vulkanism på låg respektive hög latitud

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Geologiska institutionen

    Författare :Fanni Végvári; [2019]
    Nyckelord :vulkanutbrott; aerosoler; låg hög latitud; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Vulkanisk aktivitet har sedan längre observerats ha en stor påverkan på klimatet. Svavelaerosoler från utbrott bildar molntäcken som kan sprida sig runt globen och hindrar en del solstrålar från att nå markytan. Till följd av detta sker en temperaturminskning av marknära luft under det område som molnet täcker. LÄS MER
