Experts have been studying the impact of underwater volcanic eruptions on climate change as sea-floor volcanoes expel molten rock that is linked to historical changes within the earth’s environment and orbit. Scientist Edward Baker said eruptions are believed to unusually affect the astronomy. Meanwhile, geophysicist Maya Tolstoy explained that volcanic eruptions were previously thought to be steady and slow, usually start as bursts and last from 2 weeks to 100,000 years.
Such eruptions were also believed to have minute impact; however, deep-sea volcanic eruptions are now linked to changes in the Earth’s movement around the sun, while coinciding with low tides too. During the ice age, low levels of sea were accompanied by volcanic activity under the sea. Thus, the melting of ice results in more volcanic eruptions on the land, expelling carbon dioxide that cause warming of the atmosphere, which in turn, influences the climate.
