Flood Basalt Eruptions: NASA Warns That Some Volcanoes Could Warm Climate, Destroy Ozone Layer


A new NASA climate simulation suggests that extremely large volcanic eruptions called “flood basalt eruptions” could significantly warm Earth’s climate and devastate the ozone layer that shields life from the Sun’s ultraviolet radiation. The findings contradict prior research that found these volcanoes cool the climate. The simulation also suggests that while extensive flood-basalt erupti...
