The record-breaking Hingja Tonga volcanic plume may have warmed the Earth’s climate

The eruption of the Hong Tonga volcano, which sent shock waves across the Earth in January 2022, led to the formation of the highest volcanic cloud since at least the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa, a new study reports. The amount of water the volcano injected into Earth’s atmosphere may have warmed the planet’s climate.

The volcanic eruption that tore the island of Polynesia Tonga-Henga Sabai January 15th was a domestic disaster, but it also proved to be a scientific gift that keeps on giving. A once-modest underwater volcano in a remote part of the South Pacific has exploded with unprecedented force in full view of three weather satellites. These satellites It allowed scientists around the world to observe the amazing explosion in real time and study its effects in unprecedented detail.
