Summary
Abstract: A new monthly volcanic forcing dataset is included in a coupled GCM for a more
physically consistent treatment of the stratospheric sulfate aerosol history
from explosive volcanism. The volcanic forcing is different from previous
versions in that there is an individual evolution of the aerosol for each
event. Thus the seasonal and latitudinal dependence of the volcanic aerosol
can affect ... View entire text
