Timeline of volcanism on Earth
Some eruptions cooled the global climate—inducing a volcanic winter
—depending on the amount of sulfur dioxide emitted
and the magnitude of the eruption.
Before the present Holocene
epoch, the criteria are less strict because of scarce data availability, partly since later eruptions have destroyed the evidence. Only some eruptions before the Neogene
period (from 23 Mya to 2.58 Mya) are listed. Known large eruptions after the Paleogene
period (from 66 Mya to 23 Mya) are listed, especially those relating to the Yellowstone hotspot
, the Santorini caldera
, and the Taupo Volcanic Zone.
In addition to the events listed below, there are many examples of eruptions in the Holocene on the Kamchatka Peninsula,
which are described in a supplemental table by Peter Ward

Overview of Common Era
This is a sortable summary of 27 major eruptions in the last 2000 years with VEI ≥6, implying an average of about 1.3 per century. The count does not include the notable VEI 5 eruptions of Mount St. Helens and Mount Vesuvius. Date uncertainties, tephra volumes, and references are also not included.
Note: Caldera names tend to change over time. For example, Okataina Caldera, Haroharo Caldera, Haroharo volcanic complex, Tarawera volcanic complex had the same magma source in the Taupo Volcanic Zone. Yellowstone Caldera, Henry's Fork Caldera, Island Park Caldera, Heise Volcanic Field had all Yellowstone hotspot as magma source.

Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI)
VEI and ejecta volume correlation
The global dimming through volcanism (ash aerosol and sulfur dioxide
) is quite independent of the eruption VEI.
When sulfur dioxide (boiling point at standard state
: -10 °C) reacts with water vapor, it creates sulfate ions (the precursors to sulfuric acid), which are very reflective; ash aerosol on the other hand absorbs Ultraviolet
Global cooling through volcanism is the sum of the influence of the global dimming and the influence of the high albedo
of the deposited ash layer.
The lower snow line
and its higher albedo might prolong this cooling period.
Bipolar comparison showed six sulfate events: Tambora
(1963), and El Chichón
(1982), and the 1808 mystery eruption
And the atmospheric transmission of direct solar radiation data from the Mauna Loa Observatory
(19°32'N) detected only five eruptions:
