Nice to hear of Poas: was not on the news articles elsewhere.

Did hear about Marapi (business as usual there too).

Kelut eruption did not alter the climate (currently in climate mode#3 which is a mite more efficient but does not conform to Jason model mode#2 so in the news more often for unprecedented unmodelled weather chaos).
In climate mode#3 the butterfly effect applies so a fart in the right place & time can completely change the weather patterns elsewhere on the planet (with exception of both polar hoods,{NOTE:rain shadow of karakoram is in reach of butterly effect in mode#3}).

Kelut eruption (VEI=4) was a bigger than average fart so in this case the butterfly effect absolutely applies. Appears that the Californians have broken their long drought & weather in UK also a mite drier than it was for the last 3 months...(more news on that one later as I find it). The eruption was too small to alter the climate mode (Earth continues to warm slowly under mode#3).

have a nice day: Ag
