Quaternary climatic control of biogenic magnetite production and eolian dust input in cores from the Mediterranean Sea

Abstract:

We report high-resolution magnettc measurements from two Mediterranean piston cores: LC07 (Sicily Strait) and LC10 (Ionian Sea). Magnetostratigraphic results and δ18O data provide age constraints for core LC07, where we investigate magnetic property variations for two age intervals (0-600 kyr and 660-1020 kyr). For core LC10, rock magnetic parameters appear to be climatically controlled and are used to derive an astronomically tuned age model for the interval between 780 and 1200 kyr. In core...
