Volcanic ash as a driver of enhanced organic carbon burial in the Cretaceous

The geological time scale is used by geologists and paleontologists to measure the history of the Earth and life. It is based on the fossils found in rocks of different ages and on radiometric dating of the rocks. Sedimentary rocks made from mud, sand, gravel or fossil shells and volcanic lava flows are laid down in layers or beds.
One of the biggest volcanic eruptions in recorded history, which is said to have contributed to the downfall of the ancient Minoan civilisation, may have happened later than previously thought, according to new research. The study, led by the University of Arizona in collaboration with scientists at the University of Sheffield, has potentially settled a long-standing debate between archaeologists and radiocarbon scientists over the date of the eruption of Thera — a volcano on the island of Santorini. By comparing the amount of carbon in objects archaeologists dig up against a reference historical record — a calibration curve — we can accurately date objects that are up to 50, years old.
