Presently, the intermediate depths of the North Atlantic Ocean are occupied by a great lens of warm, saline water whose source is the Mediterranean Sea. This water flows both westward and northward, finally entering the Norwegian Sea where it may contribute to the formation of North Atlantic Deep Water. The Late Neogene history of Mediterranean Outflow in the Atlantic can be monitored at DSDP-IPOD Site 548 on the continental slope Southwest of Ireland using benthic...
