Explosive volcanism on Santorini, Greece
Geological Magazine (March 1989) 126 (2): 95-126


Santorini has had 12 major and numerous minor explosive eruptions over the last 200 000 yr., yielding deposits up to 200 m thick. Each major eruption began with a pumice-fall phase and most culminated with emplacement of pyroclastic flows. Two major mafic- silicic cycles are recorded. Each commenced with explosive andesite-dacite eruptions and finished with a pair of major dacitic or rhyodacitic eruptions.
