Quantification of African Monsoon Runoff During Last Interglacial Sapropel S5
Organic‐rich sapropel layers punctuate the eastern Mediterranean sedimentary sequence,recording deep‐sea anoxic events. The timing of sapropel deposition coincides with precession minima,which are associated with the northward migration of the monsoon rain belt over North Africa. Theresultant increase in monsoon precipitation over the Sahara caused an increase in low‐δ18O freshwaterrunoff into eastern Mediterranean surface waters, which is reflected by negativeδ18O anomalies in therecords of...[Show more]
