2 EDITORIAL 02 SantoTraveler August 2017 Picture of the month CONTENTS An old proverb in Santorini says: - There are more churches than houses - There are more donkeys than people - There is more wine than water. More than 300 churches or little chapels are all around Santorini island. It is nearly impossible to see them all, as many are in plain view but others are hidden and others are suddenly revealed in front of you. Here is one from the traditional village Pyrgos, with the clouds adding their touch in the pictures.

4 SANTORINI VOLCANO 04 SantoTraveler August 2017 T Post-eruptive flooding of Santorini caldera and implications for tsunami generation he caldera-forming eruption of Santorini in the Late Bronze Age was one of the largest of the Holocene period worldwide, discharging km3 DRE (dense-rock equivalent) of silicic pyroclastic deposits, and triggering caldera collapse and tsunamis. Tsunamis from the LBA eruption have been proposed as a factor in the demise of the Minoan culture in the southern Aegean region through damage to coastal towns, harbors, shipping and maritime trade. Repeated effusive eruptions since the LBA eruption have built up the Kameni Volcano within the resulting caldera. The LBA caldera is 10x7 km wide, comprises three flat-floored basins around the Kameni edifices, and is connected to the sea by three straits (one to the NW and two to the SW). Bathymetric and seismic evidence show that the caldera was not open to the sea during the main phase of the eruption, but was flooded once the eruption had finished. Inflow of water and associated landsliding cut a deep submarine channel, thus filling the caldera in less than a couple of days. Caldera-forming eruptions of island volcanoes generate tsunamis by the interaction of different eruptive phenomena with the sea. Such tsunamis are a major hazard, but forward models of their impacts are limited by poor understanding of source mechanisms. Summary of the development of Santorini caldera prior to, during, and following the Late Bronze Age (LBA) eruption: Prior to the eruption there existed an ancient caldera in the northern half of the volcanic field. This caldera was lagoonal, as shown by the presence of fragments of ancient travertine, stromatolites and brackish to marine fauna in the LBA ejecta. There was also an andesitic edifice within this caldera. In eruptive phase 1 a Plinian eruption took place, which in phase 2 was joined by the production of syn-plinian pyroclastic surges. In phase 3, eruption of cold phreatomagmatic pyroclastic flows constructed a large tuff cone that filled the old caldera, cutting it off from the sea. In phase 4, eruption of hot pyroclastic flows took place from multiple subaerial vents, forming at least three ignimbrite fans (NW, E and S), and associated caldera collapse enlarged and deepened the ancient caldera. Post-eruptive opening of the NW and SW straits (based on the present research). At the end of the eruption the caldera was dry and isolated from the sea, probably due to thick accumulations of LBA tuff. The sea first broke through to the NW, where a combination of water erosion and landslip carved out the NW strait and flooded the caldera in less than a couple of days. Submarine landslides then opened up the SW straits once the caldera was largely flooded. Tsunamis generated by eruptions at ocean islands are a major hazard worldwide. Those from Krakatau in 1883 impacted the coasts of the Sunda Straits, where run-ups averaged 15m and reached 40 m, killing 35,000 people. If, as at most such volcanoes, caldera collapse occurred syn-eruptively, then it cannot have generated tsunamis. Entry of pyroclastic flows into the sea, combined with slumping of submarine pyroclastic accumulations, were the main mechanisms of tsunami production. Recent seismic reflection profile studies have revealed three main stratigraphic units within the upper 200m of the intracaldera fill, numbered 1 to 3 from the top-down: flat-lying sediments from modern mass wasting of the caldera cliffs (unit 1), volcaniclastic sediments produced during the early submarine stages of Kameni Volcano (unit 2), and downfaulted material interpreted as the top of the LBA eruption products (unit 3).

6 O ur new constraints on the mechanisms of tsunami generation associated with the LBA eruption arise from a multi-beam bathymetric study, supplemented by seismic profiling, of the three straits connecting the caldera to the sea. Combined with information from onshore studies of the LBA eruption products, the data allow us to show that the NW strait was carved by inrushing of the sea into the newly collapsed caldera once the eruption was over. This therefore rules out caldera collapse as a major mechanism of tsunami generation associated with the LBA eruption. We also show by modeling that the main phase of caldera flooding cannot have taken more than 2 days to arrive at completion. We conclude that regional-scale tsunamis associated with the LBA eruption were generated by the pyroclastic flow inundation of eruption phases 3 and 4, augmented perhaps by mass slumping of rapidly deposited pyroclastic deposits off the seaward slopes of the island volcano. This is consistent with tsunami modeling that shows that pyroclastic flows were indeed capable of generating waves of the observed height in northern Crete. It is also consistent with previous assertions that pyroclastic flows were the main cause of tsunamis at Krakatau.

8 A Major Change in the Stratigraphy of the Santorini Volcano in Greece (PART 2) FIGURE 2 Satellite image, ESA ((d), right) of Thera, the main island of the Santorini volcanic group. (a) Fira Quarry; (b) North of Cape Alonaki; (c) North of Karageorghis quarry where the UPS has been radiocarbon dated by an olive tree found in situ. The lower part of the LBA eruption lies on a downfaulted terrace and contains Cycladic ceramics; (d) Two funnel-shaped collapse structures meet at Cape Alonaki where they produced concentric terraces on the caldera wall. 5. Was There a Central Cone or a Water- Filled Caldera Prior to the LBA Eruption? Heiken and McCoy [23] offered a graphic portrayal of the island before the LBA eruption. Based on fission track analyses of the LPS, Seward et al. [24] calculated an age of 100,000 years. Since 1985 the discussion has focused on the strength of the LBA eruption since underwater investigations around Santorini had revealed more pyroclastic deposits on the sea floor than expected. The strength of the LBA eruption therefore increased in the literature [25]. A study of about 1450 calcareous blocks of stromatolites from the Santorini volcano was performed by Eriksen [26]. The stromatolitic blocks had been ejected in the third phase of the LBA eruption. Radiocarbon dating showed that it was possible that they had formed their build-ups in shallow seawater near the later eruption crater inside the water-filled caldera 12,000 years before the LBA eruption. This analysis of the stromatolites proved that the Santorini caldera existed prior to this eruption. Druitt and Francaviglia [27] demonstrated that pumice on the caldera wall of the LBA eruption dips down towards the caldera, confirming the existence of an earlier caldera.

9 In 1999 Druitt et al. [22] adopted the ideas of Neumann van Padang that the two pumice series triggered two calderas. They argued for a magmatic megacycle with a time interval of 200,000 years when identical eruption series were created. 6. Geo-Archaeological Investigations Since the 1970s, three of us have been working on Santorini, amongst other places in the now abandoned pumice quarries on Thera and Therasia. Even though the number of good field sites is rapidly decreasing on Santorini due to human activities, it is still possible to get important geological information from the steep walls of the caldera. Modern tools like GIS and GPS are also very useful [27]. From decades of fieldwork and research on the geology of Santorini, we have found that it is necessary to make some general changes in geological interpretations, as we show below. 7. Concentric Terraces on Thera Concentric terraces are closely related to the formation of a caldera. The latter is a volcano-tectonic collapse structure that is commonly sub-circular and funnel shaped. After a strong eruption, when the magma chamber is emptied and the roof of the chamber cannot stand the weight of the overlying material, it sometimes collapses. After the main collapse the caldera wall is unstable for a long time and erosion and down-sliding effect material on the wall. For example, a lava is more durable than tuff and terraces form on the upper surfaces of the more resistant layers. For Santorini, it could have been the Cape Riva Eruption (around 21,000 years ago) that formed a caldera with concentric terraces on its wall, like those at Cape Alonaki on Thera (Figure 2). Concentric terraces were also recently discovered on the caldera wall above Balos harbour. This observation, together with the rediscovery of a Cycladic house [28] that had been buried under the pumice of the LBA eruption, clearly indicates that there is no Lower Pumice Series material here. FIGURE 3 A visual comparison of the so-called LPS from the caldera wall below Fira with the LBA eruption products from the nearby Cape Alonaki (inserted photo) shows a striking similarity in the total thickness in the three exposures. Photos W. L. Friedrich. Abstract Two prominent and similar pumice series were described on Thera in 1879 the Upper and Lower Pumice Series (UPS and LPS). Since then, geologists have treated the two series separately because they seemingly occurred at distinct levels and had different ages. Here we show that these two pumice series are identical; there is no LPS on Santorini. All stratigraphic conclusions based on the LPS from Santorini should therefore be discarded. The water-filled Santorini caldera with its steep inner slopes existed before the eruption. Volcano- tectonic effects in connection with caldera formation created concentric terraces that were mantled by the products of the Late Bronze Age (LBA) eruption. Subsequent erosion only left remnants of the mantle behind. Topographic effects followed by slumping during sedimentation caused confusion of the stratigraphy on the caldera wall. Our results are supported by geological, paleontological and archaeological evidence. Furthermore, the caldera with its minerals, pigments, harbours and hot springs was accessible for the Thereans. This reinterpretation opens new perspectives for archaeological research. The catastrophic LBA eruption (previously called the Minoan eruption) destroyed a flourishing culture on Santorini and impacted neighbouring cultures around 1613 BC. AUTHORS Walter L.

10 Cape Alonaki FIGURE 4 The caldera wall south of Fira provides more information. The LPS here locally has a darker colour; this has been known since the work by Fouqué. This miscolouring is characteristic for those places where the LPS is overlain by black lapilli of the upper scoria series (USS) where rainwater can spill over the underlying pumice. 8. A Cycladic House at Balos Harbour on Thera Volcano-tectonic forces on the Akrotiri Peninsula had lifted the marine sediments to a height of 200 m. The uplifted part of it contains marine fossils of Plio- Pleistocene age [29]. The peninsula has an in-situ cover of the UPS, whereas the steep slopes are covered by material of the LBA eruption that is resting on narrow terraces which can be followed for several kilometres along the caldera wall of Thera. The volcanic deposits have been partly reworked on the inner side of the caldera. During the surge phase of the eruption pumice was plastered against the steep slope of the caldera wall and subsequently slid down and came to rest on the natural terraces of the old caldera wall. Due to mining activity (ca AD) above Balos harbour where the Cycladic house was found, most of the pumice mantle has been removed, including the ruins of the house. However, the characteristic platform on top of the thick lava is still visible. Neumann van Padang tried to find the excavation site in 1936 but did not succeed. In a profile he shows Bu at a height of 67 m; Bu means LPS. Geological maps by later scholars also show LPS in this area. However, in 2009 we rediscovered the platform where a house with three rooms stood prior to the LBA eruption [30]. We used satellite images together with information provided by the French scientists to find the location. A platform at 62 m above sea level fitted perfectly with the description. Even the original thickness (22 m) of pumice that buried the house with the three rooms is visible on the caldera wall below Mount Loumaravi. 9. Observations around Fira The up to 60 m thick pumice layers below Fira (Figure 3) have the same overall appearance, the same sequence and the same erosional pattern as the UPS in the nearby Fira quarry. In this quarry there are faults which show that tectonic movements played a role in their development and current position on the caldera wall. In the abandoned pumice quarries near Fira there is an abrupt shift from the lower to the upper products of the LBA eruption. The lowermost part of the UPS is in direct contact with the upper part of the so-called LPS (Figure 4 and Figure 5). FIGURE 5 Two levels of exposure of the eruption products merge on top of Cape Alonaki. The lower one is slightly darker due to the overlying black lapilli of the Upper Scoria Series (USS). The LPS and UPS get closer to each other and finally merge in the Karageorghis quarry.

22 Stargazing... in Santorini The center of our galaxy lies in the direction of the great constellation Sagittarius, the Archer. Look for Sagittarius by finding the group of stars commonly known as the Teapot. The handle, top, and spout are easy to find. Under the dark sky of Vlychada, the Milky Way seems to rise out of the Teapot s spout. One of the most beautiful beaches in Santorini is Vlychada, located in the southern part of the island. It is the perfect place to enjoy the wonders of the majestic August night sky. The Scorpion is a striking constellation in the southern sky, one of the few that resembles the object after which it was named. The Scorpion is easy to trace in the sky. Its head, curved tail and venomous stinger are prominent. At the Scorpion s heart lies a reddish star. Its color resembles that of Mars (in Greek: Ares). Ancient Greek stargazers, contemplating these two crimson objects, named the star Antares, which means rival of Ares. According to the Greek myth Scorpio depicts the scorpion that killed Orion the hunter with his stinger. Orion boasted that he could kill any wild animal. After hearing this claim, the Earth sent the scorpion to kill Orion. Because Orion and Scorpio are positioned at opposite sides from each other, it is said that Orion flees under the horizon whenever Scorpio rises in the sky. The constellation has its roots in Sumerian culture, but is traditionally depicted as a centaur, half-man, half-horse found in Greek myths. This centaur, named Chiron was good natured, unlike most centaurs who were violent. He is depicted wearing a cloak and drawing his bow, aiming an arrow at the star Antares. After Hercules accidentally wounded him, Zeus saw that Chiron was in great pain and let him die and then placed him in the heavens.

Preparation RESERVATION Cut the swordfish in thin slices. Put them on a plan. Put the crumb in a bowl, pour the orange juice first, then add the pine nuts, the raisins, the parsley, 150 grams of cheese, the 2 eggs, a pinch of salt and black pepper. Use 200 grams about of breadcrumbs to thicken the mixture, which must be malleable to form some balls, as many as the swordfish slices. Wrap each ball with a slice of swordfish. Close well and form an oval ball. Pour the oil in a dishful and in another dishful create a breading with 200 grams of breadcrumbs, 50 grams of cheese, salt and black pepper. Pass each roll in the oil individually and quickly and then pass it into the breading. Put the rolls in a wooden skewer alternating with a laurel leaf and a slice of onion between each other. Great to cook them on charcoal grill, but also can be oven baked or in a non-stick frying pan. Recommended wine: Chardonnay or Assyrtiko.
