Short summary
This paper shows that volcanic eruptions occurring at higher latitudes in windy environments can lead to significant perturbations to upper tropospheric (UT) humidity mostly due to entrainment of lower tropospheric moisture by wind-blown plumes. This research was performed for the purpose of determining long-term trends in high-latitude UT water vapour. The steps involve building a monthly climatology and using it to deseasonalize the time series. Large observed anomalies are then studied.
