Large volcanic eruptions inject considerable amounts of sulphur in the
stratosphere which, once converted into aerosols, block sun rays and tend
to cool the surface of the Earth down for several years. An international
team of researchers has just developed a method, published in Nature
Geoscience, to accurately measure and simulate the induced
drop in temperature.
Markus Stoffel was awarded with the Denali Recent Accomplishment Award
at the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Geographers in Chicago.
He received the award for his outstanding work on climate change impacts
on mass movements in the Swiss Alps. Markus is the first researcher outside
North America to receive this award.
