History eruption of Mount Tambora From Small Apocalypse

Year Without a Summer, also known as the Poverty Year and Eighteen hundred and froze to death, occurred in 1816, when the summer climate deviations destroyed crops in Northern Europe, the northeastern U.S. and eastern Canada. Now people generally assumed that the aberrations occurred because of the volcanic explosion of Mount Tambora on 5 April-15 April 1815. The mountain is located on the island of Sumbawa in the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia), who threw more than half a million tonnes - or 400 km ³ - dust into the upper atmosphere. As is generally known, after a powerful volcanic eruption, temperatures worldwide decline because of reduced sunlight that shone through the atmosphere.


Exceptional climatic aberrations in 1816 caused a very great influence in the northeastern United States, Canada Maritime and northern Europe.
Today i-dus.com theme of "History Of The eruption of Mount Tambora Small Apocalypse. Usually, in late spring and summer weather in the northeastern U.S. are relatively stable: temperatures average around 20-25 ° C, and only rarely fall to below 5 ° C. Snow is very rare summer, though sometimes they come down in May.


But in May 1816 frost (freezing) off most of the plants that have been planted, and in June two snow storms caused a lot of people who died. In July and August, lakes and rivers are frozen with ice going up in Pennsylvania in the deep south. Changes are rapid and dramatic temperature were common, with temperatures sometimes reverting from normal or above normal in the summer, namely 35 ° C to near-freezing within hours. Although farmers in southern New England managed to reap the ripe harvest, the price of corn and other grains increased dramatically. Oats, for example, rose from 12 cents sekarungnya (size 35 1 / 4 liter) on the previous year to 92 cents in U.S. dollars.


Many historians who mention this year without a summer as a main motivation for forming with immediate settlement which is now called the American Middle West. Many residents of New England who died that year, and tens of thousands of others trying to find a more fertile soil and farm conditions better in the Upper Midwest (then the Northwest Territory) (A specific example of this is when the family of Joseph Smith, who later became the founder of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints moved from Sharon, Vermont to Palmyra, New York in the state of New York's far west, after a series of failed harvests.) While the harvest is bad for several years , the final blow occurred in 1815 with the eruption of Tambora.

Tambora eruption also caused the Hungarian experience brown snow. Italy experienced something similar, with red snow that fell throughout the year. This is believed to be caused by volcanic dust in the atmosphere.

Severe storms, abnormal rainfall and floods in major rivers of Europe (including the Rhine associated with this event. Similarly with the frost that occurred in August 1816.
