Quaternary terrestrial stratigraphic correlations between the Levant and the circum-North Atlantic region: current knowledge and constraints

Abdul Sahib A. Lateef


Quaternary paleoclimatic signals from the Levant have been frequently correlated with the most widely used stratigraphic divisions of high latitudes. In this article, relevant data, underlying concepts and new information are critically reviewed to highlight sources of uncertainty. Comparison between four sites from the Bekaa Valley demonstrate the problem of correlations and paleoenvironmental diversity of the region.
