Will South America’s recent volcanic eruption change our weather? Experts anticipate that possibility since a 400-mile string of volcanoes along the Andes roared into action like a salvo of big guns a few weeks ago, shaking Chile and Argentina for two days and nights with their cannonading.
The greatest eruption of modern times, in area involved and quantity of lava emitted, left thousands of square miles of country looking as though it had passed through a snow-storm. White volcanic ash, lava blown to a fine froth, was borne clear across the continent on the wind. This ash may affect the weather since its particles serve as nuclei around which cloud droplets form.
