WARTA KOTA, BOGOR – Currently, residents of Bali are on alert.
Therefore, the activity of Mount Agung increased again and several times experienced eruptions and strombolian eruptions.
But if the citizens of Bali and the whole of Indonesia was anxious with Mount Agung’s increasing activity, the researchers and NASA scientists are just the opposite.
According to them, the eruption of Mount Agung has the potential to save the world from climate change.
It was pronounced in February 2018 ago.
NASA hopes to take advantage of the volcano that erupted on the island-yes, Mount Agung-to learn more about the effects.
The researchers hope, by tracking the eruption of Mount Agung, they can know more about how chemicals released into the atmosphere can be used to fight climate change.
After Mount Agung woke up from sleep and then erupted at the end of November last year, consistently the mountain poured steam and gas into the atmosphere.
This phenomenon is quite typical although some volcanoes are so strong that they can cause what is known as “volcanic winter”.
The largest recorded volcanic eruption in history occurred at Mount Tambora in 1815.
This eruption caused the “Year Without Summer”, causing snow fall in Albany, New York, in June the following year.
The eruption also destroyed food crops, starved people, and apparently inspired Mary Shelley to write Frankenstein.
For the researchers, Mount Agung could be their chance to find out how volcanoes affect climate like Mount Tambora.
Research into Mount Agung began with a ten-hour flight when a volcano in the Philippines erupted in 1991.
Scientists have picked up trends during a smaller-scale eruption in 1982 from the El Chichon volcano in Mexico, but nothing like what they saw at Mt Pinatubo in the Philippines called the biggest letusa of the 20th century.
Spewing a cubic of miles of rock and ash into the air and 20 million tons of sulfur dioxide gas into the atmosphere, Mount Pinatubo not only destroys the surrounding community but the amount of gas it releases affects our entire planet.
When Pinatubo erupted, a large amount of gas released spread throughout the world.
A moment later, a chemical reaction occurs, the three gases mix with moisture producing tiny “super cold” droplets known as aerosols.
In turn, the aerosol reflects and diffuses sunlight to the earth.
A large number of aerosols reflect light far enough from Earth that the average global temperature drops one degree Fahrenheit for several years.
Such eruptions, according to The New York Times, are the natural influencers of the earth.
Scientists hope they can exploit this eruption to study the next big event-and potentially save the planet from a horrific series of terrible.
According to the scientists, the eruption of Mount Agung is identical with Pinatubo.
That’s exactly why NASA hopes to send balloons into the air equipped devices to measure the impact of volcanic eruptions in the earth’s atmosphere.
NASA hopes to learn its effects for years to come.
If the eruption of Volcano could be as big as the 1963 eruption, it could pump enough sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere to produce a significant cooling effect even though it would initially damage the ozone layer.
But the problem is, the researchers did not know exactly when Mount Agung erupted with a huge eruption.
