The Messinian Guadalhorce corridor: the last northern, Atlantic-Mediterranean gateway
Miocene tectonics, with the last survi- ving gateway occurring during the early Messinian north-west of Malaga in the region of the Guadalhorce River valley. The Guadalhorce gateway pro- vided aExpand
Closure of a seaway: stratigraphic record and facies (Guadix basin, Southern Spain)
During the late Tortonian (upper Miocene), the Guadix Basin in S Spain formed one of the Betic corridors that connected the Mediterranean Sea with the Atlantic Ocean. The closure of this connectionExpand
Geology of the Malawi Rift: kinematic and tectonosedimentary background to the Chiwondo Beds, northern Malawi
Abstract Kinematic analysis of Neogene and Quaternary faults demonstrates that the direction of extension in the Malawi Rift rotated from east-northeast to southeast. Rift development commenced atExpand
Sedimentary patterns and geometries of the Bahamian outer carbonate ramp (Miocene-Lower Pliocene, Great Bahama Bank)
Core, logging and high-resolution seismic data from ODP Leg 166 were used to analyse deposits of the Neogene (Miocene-Lower Pliocene) Bahamian outer carbonate ramp. Ramp sediments are cyclicExpand
The abrupt onset of the modern South Asian Monsoon winds
It is proposed that the post Miocene Climate Optimum cooling, together with increased continentalization and establishment of the bipolar ocean circulation, i.e. the beginning of the modern world, shifted the monsoon over a threshold towards the modern system. Expand
Monsoon-induced partial carbonate platform drowning (Maldives, Indian Ocean)
Multibeam maps and high-resolution seismic images from the Maldives reveal that a late Miocene to early Pliocene partial drowning of the platform was linked to strong sea-bottom currents. In theExpand
Carbonate Platform to Basin Transitions on Seismic Data and in Outcrops: Great Bahama Bank and the Maiella Platform Margin, Italy
The comparison of seismic and core data from the western Great Bahama Bank with the exhumed Maiella Platform margin and its adjacent slope in the Apennines of Italy relates the seismic facies toExpand
Oldest Homo and Pliocene biogeography of the Malawi Rift
The evidence suggests that Pliocene hominids originated in the eastern African tropical domain and dispersed to southern Africa only during more favourable ecological circumstances. Expand
Sedimentology of the Malawi Rift: Facies and stratigraphy of the Chiwondo Beds, northern Malawi
Abstract Shallow water, nearshore lake beds and fluviatile deposits exposed in the Karonga District (northern Malawi) are subdivided into several depositional units which are bounded byExpand
