Organic-rich layers (sapropels), preserved in eastern Mediterranean marine sediment records, represent the most pronounced perturbations to thermohaline circulation and environmental conditions, in response to enhanced African monsoon activity and subsequent massive freshwater discharge into the basin. During the most recent event, sapropel S1 formed between 10.8 and 6.1 ka, when freshwater-driven stratification caused seafloor anoxia below ~ 1800 metres depth, as a result of both failure of deep water formation and enhanced productivity. Here we...
