Pinke, Z.; et al. (2019): Volcanic mega-eruptions may trigger major cholera outbreaks

Pinke, Z.; Pow, S.; Kern, Z. (2019): Volcanic mega-eruptions may trigger major cholera outbreaks. In Clim. Res. 79 (2), pp. 151–162. DOI: 10.3354/cr01587.

„Reviewing the results of environmental epidemiology, post-volcanic climatology, and environmental history, we focused exclusively on volcanic eruption-ENSO and ENSO-cholera connections in order to establish a hypothesis that large tropical and Northern Hemisphere volcanic eruptions trigger an environmentally driven cascade process via post-volcanic ENSO anomalies. This cascade process has tended historically to lead to cholera outbreaks in Bengal (i.e. the Ganges-Brahmaputra delta region of modern India and Bangladesh).“
