Stothers, R.B., 2009: A comparison of stellar extinction and space-based measurements of stratospheric aerosol optical depth. Publ. Astron. Soc. Pacific, 121, 303-306, doi:10.1086/598224.

Observed increases of stellar extinction after the two largest recent volcanic eruptions (El Chichón 1982 and Pinatubo 1991) are compiled here from published sources and compared with space-based measurements of stratospheric aerosol optical depth. Hemispheric and global annual mean optical depths following the two eruptions show close agreement between the two methods, if allowance is made for the fact that the stellar extinction data refer only to midlatitudes.
