Reventilation Episodes During the Sapropel S1 Deposition in the Eastern Mediterranean Based on Holococcolith Preservation

Incarbona, Alessandro; Abu-Zied, Ramadan H.; Rohling, Eelco; Ziveri, Patrizia


Organic‐rich layers (sapropels), preserved in eastern Mediterranean marine sediment records, represent pronounced perturbations to thermohaline circulation and environmental conditions in the basin, in response to enhanced African monsoon activity and subsequent massive freshwater discharge. During the most recent event, Sapropel S1 formed between 10.8 and 6.1 ka, when freshwater‐driven stratification caused seafloor anoxia below ~1,800‐m depth, as a result of both failure of deep water...[Show more]
