Caption: Mount Pinatubo eruption, particle model. Image 7 of 8. Satellite map of the Earth showing the spread through the atmosphere of particles from the eruption of Mount Pinatubo, in the Philippines, on 15 June 1991. This image shows the particle distribution on 23 August 1991. The colours show the atmospheric height of the dust particles, from red (highest) through orange, yellow and green to blue (lowest). The sulphur dioxide and dust particles produced by this eruption caused a drop in global temperatures over the following months.
