S.16: Paratethys-Mediterranean interactions during the Neogene


Oleg Mandic, Wout Krijgsman

Marine gateways play a critical role in the exchange of water, heat, salt and nutrients between oceans and seas and hence impact regional and global climate. Where marine gateways link to marginal basins, the impact of changes to the pattern and volume of exchange on the depositional environment of that basin can be profound. Even subtle changes to the hydrologic budget can alter the temperature, salinity and circulation of the marginal basin and hence transform its entire depositional environment. The Paratethys Sea is a superb example of a marginal basin that experienced extreme environmental changes in response to gateway evolution, such as huge fluctuations in salinity during the Badenian Salinity Crisis, a major biodiversity decrease related to the Badenian Sarmatian Extinction Event, a basin-wide change to more brackish water conditions at the beginning of the regional Sarmatian stage, and marine interactions with the Mediterranean during the Messinian.

We hope to attract geoscientists of different profiles for presenting their actual work and aim to develop better insight in the role of gateway dynamics in the Neogene history of both Mediterranean and Paratethys.
