Bardarbunga volcano system


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


First, no world ending predictions here, I promise!  Mainly just curious theory-hammering.  Bardarbunga has been

undergoing a relatively benign eruption for awhile now, however more recently has shown signs it may have a

major caldera eruption (although admittedly not of the subduction zone type).  Should that eruption in worst case result in high atmospheric SO2/particulates on the order of Pinatubo (again, theory-hammering, not a terribly likely event!)  in the next month or two, would that have an effect on the end of this winter, or next winter, or not much at all? 


Again, unlikely to be that much, but just curious how such an event might affect the current modeling and predictions. 


Thanks in advance.
