Search for volcano pairs

Answer a few questions
  [vote for,

There are numerous climate events referred to as "volcanic winters".

These are caused by dust and aerosols* lifted high into the stratosphere by volcanic plumes.

But some climatic events seem not to coincide with any specific large eruption; there's just nothing big enough to account for the effect.

We suggest that two or more volcanoes erupting simultaneously might meet the requirement.

Therefore, a comparison between known eruption dates of all volcanoes and climatic dips might be useful.

       One of the problems with this is that it is very difficult to determine the date of an ancient eruption to within a few years. If two eruptions happen a decade apart, their effects will not be synergistic.

       We never said it would be easy, did we ?

       Yes, but they went to Accounts along with the expenses form. Go on, you try getting them back.

       W. H. Auden once addressed a poem to his microbiome, except it was in about 1971, so he didn't call it that.

       It was about his stoma, following an abdominal operation.

       Keep reading the title as "volcano parts wanted".

       That too.

       A study of ash might do it. Ash from volcanos and large sooty deposits from vegetation, coal, oil fires.   

       I'm guessing that all causes of ash were far more common millions of years ago, and looking for regions with maximum occurrences, you've likely got a spot with one or more overlapping events that could cause a nuclear winter.

       There you go then, nice little Ph.D. project for you.

       Ah yes ...

       Curiously enough, that confusion between two very different authors brings us almost back on topic; for Haldane (the one quoted by [8th]) was not only a socialist, but a card-carrying communist. See last paragraph of idea.
pertinax, Nov 12 2017

       My point was it could be any number of dust producing events. It doesn't have to be a volcano. I would suggest its fire that trips the world into an ice age - global warming starts other processes to kick in like methane release, temperature rockets, every burns - nuclear winter.   

       Looking at temperature graphs, the temperature seems to plummet after major CO2 and high temperature events.
bigsleep, Nov 14 2017

       I know I get chills every time Trumputin exhales.   

       Maybe with a little luck we can balance out the global warming with a bit of ash?
