Abstract

Upper Pleistocene sediments of the western Balearic Basin enclose a sapropelic interlayer 16 cm thick. The quantitative analysis of planktonic foraminiferal assemblages shows that the interlayer deposition was related to an episode of climatic warming and salinity decrease in surface seawater. That episode was complicated by a short-term cooling and associated elevated influx of Atlantic waters. Copyright © 2005 by MAIK "Nauka/Interperiodica" (Russia).
