Mediterranean tephra stratigraphy revisited: Results from a long terrestrial sequence on Lesvos Island, Greece

Abstract:

A composite 40.2 m sediment sequence from Megali Limni, Lesvos Island, Greece, spanning the interval from 22 to 62 ka BP, contains six Pleistocene tephra layers, which can be identified on the basis of their major and trace elemental compositions.
