  • Abstract The Late Miocene was characterized by high global temperatures and partly to nearly complete desiccation of the Mediterranean Sea throughout the latter part of the Messinian age (the Messinian salinity crisis). The Late Miocene marine Mediterranean Sea area has been widely studied from different perspectives, but terrestrial paleoenvironmental and paleoclimatic records from the Mediterranean area are highly limited in their spatial range. To this end, the paleosols, dolocrete and… CONTINUE READING
