Evidence for Climate Response to Stratospheric Aerosol Perturbation Stratospheric aerosol perturbations by volcanic eruptions tend to cool the surface-troposphere system. Time series of anomalies from satellite microwave measurements reveal that there was a nearly global, but nonuniform, tropospheric cooling following the Pinatubo eruption (Dutton and Christy, 1992), coinciding with the reduction in solar radiation reaching the troposphere. , 1993a). 2°C when averaged over the six largest eruptions of the past century.
