The caldera is filling
After the catastrophic Minoan eruption, the eruptive activity
of Santorini was by no means over. For the last two thousand
years, the enormous caldera that had been enlarged and deepened by the eruption of 1613 ± 13 BC, has been the scene of
renewed volcanism: the caldera is filling again and the volcanic
edifice is changing its shape.
