PANGAEA - Data from Climatic variability of the Mediterranean Paleo-circulation (CLIVAMP)

A comprehensive database of proxy-data on climatic and hydrographic changes in the Mediterranean area/basin through geologic time. more

A paleoceanographic database for the whole Mediterranean was developed. It consists of proxy-data for climatic and hydrographic changes taken from a wide range of disciplines including marine micropalaeontology, palynology, paleobotany, limnology, organic and inorganic geochemistry. The data will be used to portray changes in the Mediterranean region from the last glacial maximum to today, with particular emphasis on the climatic extremes of the last glacial maximum and early Holocene climatic optimum. The database includes relevant data from outside the Mediterranean, such as the drainage histories of major rivers that discharge into the basin, propagating variability from their catchment areas. Only biological data are available through EurOBIS/EMODnet.
