They either have a cooling or warming effect


When volcanoes erupt, they release a mixture of gasses and particles into the air.

Some volcanoes have a cooling effect because the substances reflect sunlight away from the earth. I.E. ash and sulfur dioxide.

Other substances can cause warming by adding to the greenhouse effect. I.E. #CO_2#
