The possibilities of adapting the Modern Analogs Technique (MAT) based on planktonic foraminifers for estimating sea-surface temperatures (SST) in the Mediterranean during the Pliocene are discussed in this article. The calibration database used comprises 684 core-top samples distributed in the North Atlantic and the Mediterranean. MAT estimates show an imperceptible bias (-0.03 °C; sigma=0.59) and a low mean error of estimates (0.42 °C; sigma=0.42) when applied over the samples of the calibration dataset. The procedure...
