Short summary
It is not clear to what extent or in what manner a strong volcanic eruption will influence temperature in different regions over the long term. Therefore, new 635-year annual mean minimum temperatures (Tmin) across the eastern central Tibetan Plateau were used to explored the response of Tmin to strong volcanic eruptions. Our results show that there is a high probability that the Tmin decreases within 2 years of a large volcanic eruption, especially when such eruptions occur in low latitudes.
