Late Quaternary eolian deposition in central Italy

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Records of eolian quartz from 2 continuous sediment sequences drilled in Lagaccione and Lago di Vico volcanic lakes in central Italy contribute to the knowledge of eolian deposition in the central Mediterranean during the last 100,000 years. The chronology is based on C 14 and Ar/Ar dating and tephra analysis. Pollen data provide the paleoenvironmental framework and enable correlation between the cores. The main source of dust loading over the Mediterranean now, North Africa, may have played an important role in dust supply throughout the last climatic cycle
