The BBC reports suggest that Katla could be a significant eruption, with potential climatic implications.http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2011/12/02/katla-icelandic-volcano_n_1124934.html?ref=uk
also, they are saying it could release billions of gallons of fresh water into the ocean; what would the impact to the THC be from that?
So, to summarise:
Could cool the global climate due to dust and Sulphur emissions
Could possible weaken the THC and Gulf Stream
Would add CO2 to the atmosphere, so would have a longer term warming effect
So, worth watching and discussing.
