Laki, Iceland – The 1783-1784 fissure eruption produced a haze that engulfed most of Europe. Large quantities of aerosols emitted during the effusive fissure eruption resulted in a significant global volcanic-induced cooling episode, with climate impacts felt thousands of miles away in locations such as China and Japan. It is suggested that this eruption and the resulting crop failures/ famine triggered the French Revolution (1789-1799) (Image: A.Robock on EOS).
