Volume and extent of the Minoan tephra from Santorini Volcano: New evidence from deep-sea sediment cores
Date of Original Version
Analyses of tephra in abyssal piston cores collected during cruises of R/V Trident show that the Minoan eruption produced at least 28 km3 of tephra (13 km3 dense rock equivalent). A layer up to 5 cm thick must have been deposited on eastern Crete. © 1978 Nature Publishing Group.
