Santorini Caldera quickly deforms

Santorini — a volcanic island, which has been relatively calm since the last eruption in 1950. But Caldera again woke up and quickly deformed in unusual place for it. Professor Andrew Newman has established more than 20 navigation stations on the island. Some of them will move to 9 inches in January 2011, when the caldera awoke after "a long sleep." Everything magma chamber is filled very quickly. If an underwater eruption, it is likely to cause a tsunami of local character, which will be dangerous for cruise ships and tourists. Scientists are watching the state of the volcano. It
