The eruption of Mt Pinatubo in June 1991 caused the largest perturbation this century to the participate content of the stratosphere. The radiative influence of the injected particles put an end to several years of globally warm surface temperatures. At the same time, the combined effect of volcanic particles and anthropogenic reactive chlorine has led to record low levels of stratospheric ozone.
