New constraints on climate forcing and variability in the circum-Mediterranean region from magnetic and geochemical observations of sapropels S1, S5 and S6
Eastern Mediterranean sapropels are organic-rich layers whose formation was triggered during boreal summer insolation maxima (precession minima). Sapropel formation is associated with increased precipitation and runoff from Europe and North Africa, although the relative influence of high- and low-latitude climate mechanisms is not fully resolved. Likewise, it remains uncertain how centennial-scale interruptions in conditions that give rise to sapropels may reflect atmospheric circulation...[Show more]
