The second (BO/Minoan C) eruption phases involved pyroclastic flow and lava fountain activity and the possible generation of tsunamis.Man-made structures not buried during Minoan A were completely destroyed.Elsewhere in the Mediterranean are pumice deposits that could have been caused by the Thera eruption.
This layer has three distinct bands that indicate the different phases of the eruption.
It provides a fixed point for aligning the entire chronology of the second millennium BCE in the Aegean, as evidence of the eruption is found throughout the region.
Despite the evidence, the exact date of the eruption has been difficult to determine.
The tsunami affected coastal towns such as Amnisos, where building walls were knocked out of alignment.
On the island of Anafi, 27 km (17 mi) to the east, ash layers 3 m (10 ft) deep have been found, as well as pumice layers on slopes 250 m (820 ft) above sea level.
