Several geochemical and micropaleontological proxies were studied in a well developed sapropel S5 from a core collected south of Crete to investigate the causes and the mechanisms of its deposition, to reconstruct the paleoenvironmental and paleoceanographical conditions at time of its formation and to detect the roles played by productivity and anoxia. The geochemical proxies are also used to unravel the sediment provenance and therefore to help tracing water circulation patterns and… CONTINUE READING
