June 19, 2011. Seismologists and volcanologists are concerned about the activity of the volcano, located on the Greek island of Santorini.
Despite the fact that the forecasts of the representatives of scientific societies, the Institute of geodynamics National Observatory of Athens optimistic, careful monitoring of earthquakes of low intensity, which fixed this week on the island.
Also in the last days of the crater of the volcano comes the characteristic smell of sulfur. All these phenomena are caused by the accumulation of magma, which presses on the crater in the lower part of the volcano.

on March 15. One of the most famous and picturesque Greek Islands, Santorini, also known as Thira, may be destroyed as a result of a strong eruption of an underwater volcano. To such conclusion came from American scientist Andrew Newman from Georgia Institute of Technology.
He found that the volcanoes of the island, not showing visible signs of geological activity since 1950, woke up again.

on September 14. An international team of scientists has found renewed activity of the volcano of Santorini in Greece. Studies show that underground chamber containing molten magma, in the period from January 2011 to April 2012 expanded 10-20 million cubic metres.
For comparison, this amount is 15 times the volume of the Cup of the Olympic stadium in London. In some parts of the Islands the accumulation of magma led to the lifting surface to 14 inches.

Reviewed, analyzed and compared to a variety of sources - historical, ethnic, zoogeographic, astronomy, etc. The progress made in the excavation and geological survey of the seabed, given such a wealth of material that is now the problem of Atlantis, we can look different. What used to be based only on hunches and assumptions, has been a real confirmation by new evidence. Who can even imagine the cultural level of the Atlanteans and describe the nature of the geological disaster, which led to their Read more [...]
The study of the deep sediments of the eastern Mediterranean and the volcanic archipelago has restored Santorinskogo conditions grandiose volcanic disaster that occurred 3,500 years ago in the Mediterranean.
Bottom sediments of the deep seas and oceans are usually studied using special tubes - corer, sink to the bottom of the ocean from the deck of the ship. These tubes, hollow inside, bumping into surface layers of sediment, and then filled in the last retrieved to the surface. Taken out of the tube column sediment corer typically reaches a length of several meters, and in some cases, a few Read more [...]
