Rampino, M.R., and S. Self, 1984: Sulphur-rich volcanic eruptions and stratospheric aerosols. Nature, 310, doi:10.1038/310677a0.

Data from direct measurements of stratospheric optical depth, Greenland ice-core acidity, and volcanological studies are compared, and it is shown that relatively small but sulfur-rich volcanic eruptions can have atmospheric effects equal to or even greater than much larger sulfur-poor eruptions. These small eruptions are probably the most frequent cause of increased stratospheric aerosols. The possible sources of the excess sulfur released in these eruptions are discussed.
