The youngest lavas of the Santorini volcano were created on the 10th of January 1950. The volcanologists have named these lavas “Liatsikas” in honor of the geologist Liatsikas who had worked on the two volcanic islets of Santorini, the New and the Old Kameni, for many years. The Liatsikas lavas are the youngest volcanic rocks of Greece and of the Eastern Mediterranean [photo by M. Ioakemides, January 1950]
