... is a typically iron-poor, silica-rich melt. He cites Devine et al. on the strong correlation between the iron and sulphur contents of undegassed magmas, and Rampino& Self on the greater likelihood of intermediate-sized sulphur-rich eruptions being represented in ice cores than the larger, sulphur-poor ones. His conclusion is worth noting: "This suggests that the Minoan eruption need not have had any extraordinary global impact." Although the tree rings do show something for the 17th century BC, he notes "there is no clear reason for assigning this to Santorini other than the belief that the Minoan eruption ought to be represented" and, of course, being sulphur-poor, it might well not be represented! Our Monitor correspondent, while noting the significance of Pyle's suggestion that the Thera eruption might not have had any great global impact (and therefore might not show in the ice cores or tree-ring records), wonders why we are only recently (in 1989) hearing this argument: the evidence on which it is based is quite old and easily accessible.

62. Homer in the Baltic [Aeon Journal $]
... layout. The increasing presence of Greek-speaking populations in the Mediterranean basin, with their cultural and trade supremacy, later consolidated this phenomenon from the time of Mycenaean civilization to the Hellenistic-Roman period. In short, besides the geographic correspondences in favor of this theory, there is the remarkable temporal concurrence between the end of the "climate optimum" in northern Europe and the settling of the Mycenaeans in the Aegean area. We should also note that a catastrophic event happened at that time. This was the eruption of the volcano of Thera (Santorini) around the year 1630 bc, which presumably extinguished the Minoan civilization in Crete, and certainly had severe consequences worldwide. Traces of it have been found in the annual rings of ancient American trees. This eruption would have given rise to atmospheric phenomena which must have terrorized the Bronze Age civilizations of northern Europe. If we consider that the "optimum" had begun to decline some centuries before, this event probably started, or quickened, the final collapse. This is the same age that saw the rise of Aryan, ...

... tree-ring chronology, Mike Baillie looked for the worst cases the tree rings recorded-- the thinnest rings, which would indicate frost damage, caused perhaps by a particularly long cold spell due to the eruption of a volcano which would have brought dust into the atmosphere and thus blocked out the sunlight. Baillie informed his audience that there exist a series of rings which show no summer growth and which were dated, via his sequence, to 3624 BP (1627 BC). His conclusion was that this must be the date of the Santorini eruption because it fits in with the date proposed by some archaeologists. This date was also correlated with high acidity levels in the Greenland Ice cores from Camp Century. Baillie correlates tree-ring dates, ice core dates, Biblical dates and events, and the chronology of the ancient world as constructed in the last century, in order to provide a reasonable looking structure. Baillie is of the opinion that long-lasting dips in the climate, as indicated by tree ring growths, are caused by cosmic dust. There are, he said, ...
