Assignment Volcanic eruptions are a good example of a natural climate forcing mechanism. To prepare you for our module capstone project on the possible effects of a modern day catastrophic volcanic eruption, complete Volcanic Eruptions Part A before coming to class on _##/##/## (the day of unit 6)______
How would a volcanic eruption alter Earth’s mean surface temperature Volcanic eruption ? Earth’s mean surface Temperature Take a minute to jot down your ideas in the space below, compare with your neighbor and revise as appropriate, and then be prepared to share with the class.
How would a volcanic eruption alter Earth’s mean surface temperature Volcanic eruption - Earth’s mean surface Temperature Figure suggests that solar cooling is greater than increased greenhouse trapping.
