Ice cores show volcanic eruptions and cold climate strongly linked

Researchers find new evidence that large eruptions were responsible for cold temperature extremes recorded since early Roman timesIt is well known that large volcanic eruptions contribute to climate variability. However, quantifying these contributions has proven challenging due to inconsistencies in both historic atmospheric data observed in polar ice cores and corresponding temperature variations seen in climate indicators such as tree rings.
