Strait uplift due to isostasy played a pivotal role in the development and maintenance of a desiccated Mediterranean basin during the Late Miocene Messinian salinity crisis. New three-dimensional flexure models for the western Mediterranean suggest that most of the giant evaporite body was deposited before sea-level lowering. Any mechanism that subsequently caused a Mediterranean sea-level lowering by a few hundred meters during several thousand years sufficed to cause isostatic uplift and… CONTINUE READING
