And the volcano eruptedWonka tonka honga ha ebe By mid-January, its effects reached hundreds of kilometers and led to a tsunami.
There is a volcano in the country TongaIt is an archipelago of dozens of islands in the Pacific Ocean.
A NASA scientist on Thursday added new information about the eruption, which pushed an unprecedented volume into the stratosphere, one of the upper layers of the atmosphere, and enough to fill 58,000 Olympic-sized swimming pools. “Fox News” Network.
A scientist noted Atmosphere At the agency, Louis Milan: “We’ve never seen anything like this.”
Milan explained as he rebelled VolcanoThe sea water came into contact with the extremely hot lava, resulting in the formation of ‘explosive steam’.
According to NASA, this vapor will remain for years and will affect the Earth’s temperature.
It is estimated that this category Steam It takes about 3-5 years to dissolve, but it can take 5-10 years for the water from the eruption to evaporate.
Milan writes in a scientific study that the volcano’s impact on climate is observed not through surface cooling, but rather through surface warming caused by volcanic sulfate aerosols.
A study led by Milan attempted to measure size Evaporating water Volcanism pushed it into the stratosphere, located 12-53 km above the Earth’s surface.
And found Milan And his colleagues found that the volcano sent an estimated 146 TAR (one trillion equivalents) into the stratosphere, an amount equal to about 10 percent of the total water in the atmosphere.
