Variations in terrigenous dilution in western Mediterranean Sea pelagic sediments in response to climate change during the last glacial cycle

Abstract:

Hemipelagic intervals in four giant Calypso piston cores from the Balearic Abyssal Plain (western Mediterranean Sea) were studied in order to determine fluctuations in the supply of terrigenous sediments to the basin during the last 130,000 years and possible climatic modulation of terrigenous sediment and particle flux. Carbonate records from hemipelagic intervals in these cores display distinct 'Atlantic' type cycles, where glacial periods show, on average, 20% lower calcium carbonate conte...
