Atmospheric Effects (1980-1989)

All times are local (unless otherwise noted)


No significant additions of aerosols to the stratosphere have been detected since the period following the eruption of Ruiz in November 1985. April and May lidar observations from Mauna Loa, Hawaii showed a continuation of the gradual decline in the stratosphere's aerosol content.
