Stothers, R.B., 1984: The great Tambora eruption in 1815 and its aftermath. Science, 224, 1191-1198, doi:10.1126/science.224.4654.1191.

Quantitative analytical methods are used to reconstruct the course of events during and after the cataclysmic eruption of Mount Tambora, Indonesia, on 10 and 11 April 1815. This was the world's greatest ash eruption (so far as is definitely known) since the end of the last Ice Age. This synthesis is based on data and methods from the fields of volcanology, oceanography, glaciology, meteorology, climatology, astronomy, and history.
