Stable isotopic evidence from Holocene Sea of Marmara sediments for two-way watermass interchange betweeen the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. South African Journal of Science 95 (4): Charles Darwin wrote a book on coral reefs (structure and distribution) HMS Challenger sampled the ocean across the globe heralding the beginning of oceanography as a science discipline (systematically explored marine environments, deployed dredges and gathered marine organisms, documented them w/ detailed drawings).

      In his classic book The Sea-Craft of pre-History, Paul Johnstone says the best guess about the arrival of skin covered boats in North Europe is in the “immediate Postglacial or the late Pleistocene,” roughly the same time as the Solutreans(at 41). etc. that they weren’t sailing off into an abyss. And the Mediterranean is a whole lot. The book concludes by discussing current trends in sea levels and likely future sea-level changes. This is an important and authoritative resource.

The present-day Mediterranean Sea resulted from a sequence of closing such marine connections. The middle Miocene ( Ma) closure of the gateway to the Indian Ocean had presumably the most profound climate implications because it interrupts a direct marine connection between Africa and Eurasia forcing ocean currents to pass south of Africa.

In The Climate of the Mediterranean Region, Mediterranean climate and its impacts on land processes and on human activities are also tightly connected with the circulation of water masses and the ecological processes of the Mediterranean Sea.

Because of its relatively small size, its geographical location, and its semi-land-locked nature, this marine basin is very sensitive and responds.

Strait uplift due to isostasy played a pivotal role in the development and maintenance of a desiccated Mediterranean basin during the Late Miocene Messinian salinity crisis. New three-dimensional flexure models for the western Mediterranean suggest that most of the giant evaporite body was deposited before sea-level by: A surface outflow of brackish water (salinity 18–20 psu) exits via the Turkish Straits, and denser Mediterranean water (salinity 36–38 psu) enters the Black Sea as an undercurrent through the same channel and flows over the continental shelf into the deep central basin of the Black Sea (salinity 22 psu) (Oguz, Ducklow, & Malanotte-Rizzoli.

Ma, the continental shelf of the northern Mediterranean Sea, Iskenderun Bay in particular, was formed by superimposed deltaic successions (depositional sequences) separated by major erosional.

The opening and evolution of the Atlantic during the last – myrs had profound consequences both for the paleo‐oceanography of the world ocean and for the geology of the adjacent continents where vast basins developed.

The dominant portion of the global land area drain today therefore directly or indirectly into the Atlantic by: The book concentrates on the regions bordering the Mediterranean Sea, western and central Europe, China, Japan, West and South Africa and the southwestern USA.
