[1] Water column stratification increased at climatic transitions from cold to warm periods during the late Quaternary and led to anoxic conditions and sapropel formation in the deep eastern Mediterranean basins. Highresolution data sets on sea-surface temperatures (SST) (estimated from U37 k0 indices) and dO of planktonic foraminifer calcite (dOfc) across late Pleistocene sapropel intervals show that d Ofc decreased (between 1 and 4.6%) and SST increased (between 0.7 and 6.7 C). Maximal… CONTINUE READING
