Researchers at the Center for Climatic Research (CCR) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have revised and calibrated a global volcanic database compiled from more than 2000 radiocarbon-dated eruptions from the late Pleistocene and Holocene. The updated database is available online as an appendix to this correspondence 5 ( We briefly describe the database, suggest some potential applications, and invite other researchers in the geologic and atmospheric sciences to both use and help refine the archive by incorporating additional data as it becomes available.
