Magnetic susceptibility of eastern Mediterranean marine sediments as a proxy for Saharan dust supply?

Larrasoana, Juan C; Roberts, Andrew; Rohling, Eelco J.

Description

Interpretations of magnetic susceptibility variations in circum-Saharan marine sediments have suggested a close relationship with Saharan dust supply, which assumes that dust dominates over the potential contributions from a variety of other sources and processes. To evaluate the importance of Saharan dust supply versus that of other potential sources of variability in magnetic susceptibility, we compile magnetic susceptibility data from eastern Mediterranean Plio-Pleistocene sequences at Ocean...[Show more]
