The solar magnetic field and the way it interacts with the Earth's magnetic field, and the solar "wind" is also a factor. The solar wind strongly affects the flux of cosmic rays that enter the Earth's atmosphere. There is some research that indicates an increase in volcanic activity during periods of high cosmic radiation. For example: Explosive volcanic eruptions triggered by cosmic rays: Volcano as a bubble chamber.

Volcanoes with silica-rich and highly viscous magma tend to produce violent explosive eruptions that result in disasters in local communities and that strongly affect the global environment. We examined the timing of 11 eruptive events that produced silica-rich magma from four volcanoes in Japan (Mt. Fuji, Mt. Usu, Myojin-sho, and Satsuma-Iwo-jima) over the past 306 years (from AD 1700 to AD 2005). Nine of the 11 events occurred during inactive phases of solar magnetic activity (solar minimum), which is well indexed by the group sunspot number. This strong association between eruption timing and the solar minimum is statistically significant to a confidence level of 96.7%.

I concur with the correlation, but suspect that the mechanism they specify for causation may not be accurate.
