Abstract

Mediterranean ‘raised beaches’ were subject to Quaternary research since the early years of the 20th century. The uniqueness of a warm-loving molluscs fauna immigrating into the Mediterranean made the coastline a prime interest for studying Quaternary sea-level changes. Today, we have a detailed picture of this historically important coastline characterised by tectonically dormant coastal zone alternating with zones that are subject to tectonic deformation. As part of the Word Atlas of last interglacial shorelines (WALIS) database we compiled 10 MIS 5e proxies for the eastern Mediterranean area available at http://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.4454553 (Mauz, 2020). These datapoints are sea-level indicators of variable quality situated between 0±1 m and 12±10 m resulting in a reconstructed MIS 5e palaeo-sea level situated between 0±2 m and 13±10 m.
