Kenneth J Hsü
A deep-sea drilling cruise to the Mediterranean in late 1970 discovered the presence of an extensive evaporite deposit under the Mediterranean seabed. The deposit includes dolomite, anhydrite, gypsum, halite, and more soluble salts and covers an area more than 10**6 km 2. The origin of the evaporites has been interpreted as the product of desiccation, when the Mediterranean was isolated from the Atlantic during the Late Miocene Messinian stage, 5-7 million years ago. The desiccation...
