Eastern Mediterranean surface water Nd during Eemian sapropel S5: Monitoring northerly (mid-latitude) versus southerly (sub-tropical) freshwater contributions

Osborne, Anne H.; Marino, Gianluca; Vance, Derek; Rohling, Eelco


A well developed sapropel (S5) was deposited in the eastern Mediterranean during the Last Interglacial (Eemian), 124-119ka. Freshwater contributions to the basin at this time can be traced using the isotopic composition of Nd in planktonic foraminifera. This enables differentiation between radiogenic sources to the south, under the influence of the African monsoon, and unradiogenic sources to the north, relating to the mid-latitude westerlies. Here we compare new Nd data, from a core in the...[Show more]
