Etna Plume Lab - EPL
Mount Etna is one of the most important emitters of gas and particles on Earth, accounting for about 10% of the global average volcanic emissions of carbon dioxide and SO2. Its continuous degassing and episodic explosive eruptions are important sources of particles and gas for the Mediterranean atmosphere.Etna is a very well monitored volcano; nevertheless, the quite possible important impact of Etna on the atmospheric composition, the aerosol chemical, microphysical, and optical properties, the cloud occurrence and properties, the radiative balance and the regional climate in the Mediterranean is not yet systematically studied. EPL aims at establishing a multidisciplinary framework involving atmospheric/solid Earth scientists and climatologists to better understand the links between volcanological and atmospheric processes determining Mount Etna's impacts on the regional Mediterranean climate.
