GEOLOGY AND VOLCANISM OF SANTORINI

New book by W. Friedrich - Fire in the Sea New book by the Geological Society - the Santorini volcanoNew !


REMARK: Where to start??

The total amount of literature about Santorini would probably fill an own library. I recommend a visit to Fira's municipal library on Thera itself (just opposite the bus station) !
This list is necessarily incomplete, but includes the most important works. Contributions are highly welcome . Please contact me (Tom Pfeiffer) !
As key references I suggest the reader to start with one of the following:
