Abstract

Regional distributions of tephra deposits within Upper Quaternary pelagic sediments of the eastern Mediterranean and southern Aegean Seas have been determined from cores of deep-sea sediments. Slumping or other mass-wasting processes on the sea-floor have significantly altered tephra distributions| local variability can be equally significant. Additional dispersal or mixing due to oceanic currents and biological activity have also been important physical processes in both pre-and post-burial modification of ash layers.
