Red Sea isolation history suggested by Plio-Pleistocene seismic reflection sequences
High evaporation rates in the desert climate of the Red Sea ensure that, during glacial sea level lowstands when water exchange with the Indian Ocean was more restricted, water salinity and δ18O became unusually extreme. Modeling of the effect on Red Sea sedimentary δ18O has been used previously to reconstruct relative sea level to 500 ka and now poses the question of whether that sea-level model could be extended if continuous core material of older sediment became available. We attempt to...[Show more]
