Late Miocene intensification of continentality in the Black Sea region
The Black Sea basin is the sink for some of the largest European rivers and has acted as such, since it was part of the Eastern Paratethys. The late Miocene-to-Pliocene sedimentary record of the
The contribution of fire to the late Miocene spread of grasslands in eastern Eurasia (Black Sea region)
TLDR
The first biomass combustion record based on late Miocene to Pleistocene charcoal morphologies from the Black Sea is presented, and it is shown that a mixed regime of surface and crown fires under progressively hotter and drier climates accelerated the forest to open woodland transition and sustained a more flammable ecosystem.
Late Miocene megalake regressions in Eurasia
TLDR
The integrated stratigraphic study shows that the main desiccation episodes occurred between 9.75 and 7.65 million years ago, and identifies four major regressions that correlate with aridification events, vegetation changes and faunal turnovers in large parts of Europe.
Severe late Miocene droughts affected western Eurasia

Late Miocene climate cooling and intensification of southeast Asian winter monsoon
TLDR
The authors show that changes in the global carbon cycle drove climate cooling, culminating in ephemeral Northern Hemisphere glaciations and intensification of the Asian winter monsoon from 7 to 5.5 Ma, suggesting thatChanges in the carbon cycle involving the terrestrial and deep ocean carbon reservoirs were instrumental in driving late Miocene climate cooling.
