81. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... 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 ...
82. Homer in the Baltic [Journals] [Aeon]
... 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 ...
83. Planet in Crisis: the Earth's Last 12,000 Years [Journals] [SIS Review]
... arise quite suddenly, would include events which have often been termed mid-Holocene catastrophes. Lithospheric adjustments such as the Scandinavian, Alpine and South American lake tilts, extensive regional subsidences such as the Indonesian/Australasian/Melanesian area highlighted earlier, large-scale water table changes as in the Arabian and Saharan regions and earthquakes and severe volcanism, such as the Santorini eruption and its widespread aftermath effects , are typical examples. There is also no doubt that large earthquakes such as at one time racked Roman Europe are closely associated with the Chandler Wobble [123, 124], itself intimately connected with viscosity activity at the Earth's core . Why does the inner Core rotate ...

85. June 15, 762 BCE: A Mathematical Analysis of Ancient History [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... Egypt in 504. The mathematical analyses of the auxiliary historical periods before 905 and after 504 adhere to all the major tenets of Dr. Velikovsky. In the former period, all synchronisms can be developed with accuracy and precision as far back as 1626, which I feel is the exact year of the Exodus, the Hyksos Invasion and the Santorini Cataclysm. Separately included, but not discussed or detailed in this treatise, is a synchronized chronology of the histories of Egypt and Israel back to the year 1626. It should be easy for Assyriologists and others to adapt their chronologies as well. It is my contention that these cosmic events are not random occurrences. They are as systematic ...
86. Ice Core Evidence [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... to supposedly known volcanic events. This comes out to eight volcanic events removed from consideration, but also leaves us with 18 other volcanic events, each of which is of an unknown and an undated eruption, and each of which could be the one that actually occurred in place of the eight accepted events. All of this means that the Santorini volcano, which is supposed to have erupted in -1628 and to have left an acid signal in the Greenland icecap, as well as frost damage in tree rings of southwestern Bristlecone pines and Irish oaks, could just have easily been the effect of one of the 18 other volcanic eruptions that have never been discovered. In fact, the ...
