Laki is a volcanic fissure in southern Iceland, which erupted between June 1783 and February 1784, pouring out 42 billion tons of basalt lava and clouds of poisonous hydrofluoric acid and sulfur dioxide compounds. The Laki eruption and its aftermath caused a drop in global temperatures, resulting in crop failures in Europe and droughts in North Africa and India.
