Radiative impact of volcanic aerosol in lowermost stratosphere slowed global warming: Study

Jul 14, 2015 13:13 IST

A study done by a team of international researchers, said that radiative forces associated with volcanic aerosols in the lowermost stratosphere (LMS) may have slowed down global warming. Volcanoes helped in slowing the global warming by injecting particulates into the atmosphere.

The study was published in the journal Nature Communications on 9 July 2015.

The team that included scientists from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) scientists says that the volcanic aerosols have acted during the last one decade as a natural umbrella to slow down global temperature increase from greenhouse gases.

However, the team says that despite this, the global greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has continuously increased over past decade, which means that global surface temperature has not followed the same path.
