Stothers, R.B., and M.R. Rampino, 1983: Historic volcanism, European dry fogs, and Greenland acid precipitation, 1500 B.C. to A.D. 1500. Science, 222, 411-433, doi:10.1126/science.222.4622.411.

Historic dry fogs in Europe, acid precipitation in Greenland, and major explosive volcanic eruptions correlate well with each other between 1500 B.C. and A.D. 1500. European (Mediterranean and Icelandic) volcanic eruptions appear to be the source of at least five of the nine largest acidity signals found in Greenland ice for this period. Between 152 B.C. and A.D. 43, eruptions of sulfur-rich Mount Etna probably supplied about 15 percent of the smaller acidity signals.
