Paleoclimatic record of a long deep sea core from the eastern Mediterranean
Abstract A deep-sea core over 16 m long from the crestal area of the Mediterranean Ridge has been investigated with different techniques, including quantitative micropaleontology, stable isotopesExpand

The base of the Zanclean Stage and of the Pliocene Series
the Zanclean Stage and of the Pliocene Series brings years of controversy to an end. The boundary-stratotype of the stage is located in the Eraclea Minoa section on the southern coast of SicilyExpand

The nature and distribution of Messinian erosional surfaces — Indicators of a several-kilometer-deep Mediterranean in the Miocene☆
Abstract The deep-basin desiccation model for the origin of Messinian-age Mediterranean evaporites implies two basic assumptions: 1. (1) The evaporites were in part laid down under shallow-waterExpand

Tsunami-induced sediment transport in the abyssal Mediterranean Sea
An unusual stratigraphic unit (nicknamed “homogenite”) fills topographic lows in the complex ridge and trough bathymetry at two survey sites on the Western Mediterranean Ridge and the CalabrianExpand

Geophysical evidence of mud diapirism on the Mediterranean Ridge accretionary complex
Mud volcanoes, mud cones, and mud ridges have been identified on the inner portion of the crestal area, and possibly on the inner escarpment, of the Mediterranean Ridge accretionary complex. FourExpand

High-resolution biostratigraphy at the Miocene/Pliocene boundary in holes 974B and 975B, western Mediterranean
Extended sedimentary sequences encompassing the Miocene/Pliocene boundary were continuously cored in the Tyrrhenian Sea (Hole 974B) and Balearic Basin (Hole 975B) during Ocean Drilling Program LegExpand

Deep-sea tsunami deposits in the eastern Mediterranean: New evidence and depositional models
The tsunami wave induced by the collapse of the Santorini caldera after the Bronze age (Minoan) eruption (3500 BP) produced turbidites and large volume mega-turbidites in the abyssal plains of theExpand

Stable isotopic fractionation, climate change and episodic stagnation in the eastern Mediterranean during the late Quaternary
Fluctuations in the δ18O composition of planktonic foraminifers in eastern Mediterranean piston cores indicate cycles with amplitudes much greater than those which can be attributed alone to globalExpand
