Abrupt shoaling of the nutricline in response to massive freshwater flooding at the onset of the last interglacial sapropel event

Grelaud, Michael; Marino, Gianluca; Ziveri, Patrizia; Rohling, Eelco

Description

A detailed assessment of the respective roles of production, export, and subsequent preservation of organic carbon (C org) in the eastern Mediterranean (EMED) sediments during the formation of sapropels remains elusive. Here we present new micropaleontological results for both surface samples taken at several locations in the EMED and last interglacial sapropel S5 from core LC21 in the southeastern Aegean Sea. A strong exponential anticorrelation between relative abundances of the lower photic...[Show more]
