Paleoceanographic proxies, such as marine micropaleontology, sedimentology and organic geochemistry have
been performed in the sediment record of SK-3 gravity core (total length 217cm, water depth 249m) in order to
provide possible determination of late interglacial-Holocene the paleoenvironmental changes, at the south
western margin of Cyclades plateau in the SW Aegean Sea. The sediment core exhibits two sapropels layer; the
first one is associated with sapropel S1. The second sapropelic layer which we focus on represents anoxic
conditions during the high sea-level warm event associated with sapropel S5 deposition.
