Concurrent tectonic and climatic changes recorded in upper Tortonian sediments from the Eastern Mediterranean

Köhler, Cornelia M.; Krijgsman, Wout; van Hinsbergen, Douwe J.J.; Heslop, David; Dupont-Nivet, Guillaume


The upper Tortonian Metochia marls on the island of Gavdos provide an ideal geological archive to trace variations in Aegean sediment supply as well as changes in the North African monsoon system. A fuzzy-cluster analysis on the multiproxy geochemical and rock magnetic dataset of the astronomically tuned sedimentary succession shows a dramatic shift in the dominance of 'Aegean tectonic' clusters to 'North African climate' clusters. The tectonic signature, traced by the starvation of the Cretan...[Show more]
