Bottom sediment samples were collected in the Central Mediterranean, Southern Adriatic, Tyrrhenian, Algerian-Provencal, and Alboran basins of the Mediterranean Sea. Fifty-six datings were done for 12 sediment cores. The lowest sedimentation rates during Holocene were found on the abyssal plain of the Algerian-Provencal basin (2.4-4.0 cm/ky). In the Southern Adriatic, Tyrrhenian, and Alboran basins sedimentation rates were somewhat higher (6-12 cm/ky). On slopes of the Southern Adriatic and Tyrrhenian basins during Late Würm glaciation rates...
