Katla could cause "serious weather cvhanges"
25 Mar 10 - If Iceland's Katla volcano should erupt, it would likely send the world, including the USA, into an extended deep freeze, says this article on USA Today."
"Katla could cause some serious weather changes," says Hufford. It depends on the duration of the eruption, and how high the ash gets blasted into the stratosphere.
When Mount Pinatubo erupted in 1991, it spewed ash 70,000 feet into the stratosphere for two days and temperatures dropped worldwide about four degrees for about a year.

When Katla last produced a major
eruption in 1918, the flood water flow was of Amazon proportions at
250,000 cubic metres. Katla is due another big eruption,” said Dr
Russell, who went to Iceland 11 years ago to study the consequences of a
smaller eruption at Katla.
