Why will sulfur oxide and sulfur dioxide contribute to global cooling?
How can volcanic eruptions contribute to climate change?
Volcanoes release two gasses that can affect climate: carbon dioxide, and sulfur dioxide. Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas that traps heat in the lower atmosphere. Increasing the amount of carbon dioxide in the world can raise global temperatures. Sulfur dioxide will form tiny droplets in the upper atmosphere, reflecting sunlight and causing cooling.

Is sulphur dioxide the same as sulphur?
No, sulfur is an element and sulfur dioxide is a gaseous compound. Sulfur dioxide is the combustion product of sulfur in an oxygen atmosphere (S+O2 --> SO2) Where sulfur is an element, sulfur dioxide is a compound and where sulfur is an insoluble yellow solid, sulfur dioxide is a colorless soluble gas.

What gas released by volcanoes is a key greenhouse gas?
There are 2 potential greenhouse gases released by volcanos: Carbon dioxide (CO2) released by volcanos is a greenhouse gas, but United States Geological Survey (USGS) says volcanos have never released enough CO2 to cause detectable global warming. Sulfur dioxide (SO2) released by volcanoes causes global cooling. USGS says volcanos have occasionally released enough SO2 to cause detectable global cooling.
