Detecting missing beats in the Mediterranean climate rhythm from magnetic identification of oxidized sapropels (Ocean Drilling Program Leg 160)

Larrasoana, Juan C; Roberts, Andrew; Hayes, Angela; Wehausen, Rolf; Rohling, Eelco J.


Eastern Mediterranean sapropels are organic-rich sediments whose formation is related to variations in the Earth's orbit. They are therefore important for reconstructing past climatic variations and for producing astronomically tuned geological timescales. Previous studies have suggested that the distinctive magnetic properties of sapropels, which result from non-steady-state diagenetic reactions related to degradation of organic matter, might be used for identifying sapropels that have escaped...[Show more]
