Underwater Eruptions May Cause Climate Change: Scientists

New studies suggests that the ice ages influence underwater volcanic eruptions. Because volcanic chains spread across 37,000 miles (59,500 kilometers) on the ocean floor, the eruptions could pump out enough carbon dioxide gas to shift planetary temperatures, authors of the study said. "Surprisingly, the deep seafloor matters in the long-term climate cycle," said Maya Tolstoy, lead author of one of the studies.
