1816- Summer temperatures were some of the coldest on record. This resulted in major food shortages across the Northern Hemisphere. Severe climate abnormalities caused average global temperatures to decrease by 0.4–0.7 °C (0.7–1 °F). It was an agricultural disaster. Evidence suggests that the anomaly was predominantly a volcanic winter event caused by the massive 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora in April in the Dutch East Indies (known today as Indonesia). This eruption was the largest in at least 1,300 years and was perhaps exacerbated by the 1814 eruption of Mayon in the Philippines.
