Seafloor volcano pulses may alter climate: Strikingly regular patterns, from weeks to eons

5 febrero 2015

A new study shows that undersea volcanoes flare up on strikingly regular cycles, ranging from two weeks to 100,000 years — and, that they erupt almost exclusively during the first six months of each year. The pulses — apparently tied to short- and long-term changes in earth’s orbit, and to sea levels — may help trigger natural climate swings.
