Several observers reported interesting convective phenomena in the months and years following the 15 June 1991 climactic eruption of Mount Pinatubo, Philippines. The observed phenomena included deep convection resulting from (1) lower level eruptions, (2) secondary phreatic explosions, and (3) enhanced surface heating. We have compared radar records and satellite imagery to obtain a more coherent understanding of these ''volcanic-cumulonimbi'' from 17 June to 30 September 1991 and to identify observationa…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
