This is purely out of curiosity. I'm currently studying geoscience at university, and it has been brought up in discussions that Volcanic eruptions are natural pollutants, as they release ash and smaller particulates into the atmosphere. It also has been discussed that after an eruption, the temperature becomes cooler, among other effects. I have been wondering, if this is the effect of a natural event, then what were the environmental effects of the atomic bomb that was detonated in Nagasaki, which in this case could be considered anthropogenic? I've been trying to research it online but only seem to be getting the general effects of the atomic bomb. I'd prefer websites from scientific institutes or scientific journals. Any help would be greatly appreciated. ThanksPlease Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
