Published July 8 in the journal Nature, a new study led by scientists from the Desert Research Institute (DRI) and collaborating international institutions, present a new reconstruction of the timing and associated radiative forcing of nearly 300 individual volcanic eruptions extending as far back as the early Roman period.
