Volcanic Loading: The Dust Veil Index, CDIAC NDP-013
Entry ID: CDIAC_NDP13

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Lamb (1970) formulated the Dust Veil Index (DVI) in an attempt to quantify the
impact on the Earth's energy balance of changes in atmospheric composition due
to explosive volcanic eruptions. The DVI is a numerical index that quantifies
the impact of a particular volcanic eruption's release of dust and aerosols
over the years following the event. This package provides DVI's for the period
