Abstract

The main purpose of this work is to make a first evaluation of the potential of the carbonate lacustrine sediment of the Mercure Basin (Basilicata region), to preserve palaeoclimatic information during the Middle Pleistocene. For this purpose a multi-proxy analysis of the lacustrine sediments from a selected section of the basin was undertaken. The selected section contains several tephra layers, which constrains the timing of deposition to MIS 13. Stable isotopes (oxygen and carbon) and element content were tentatively interpreted as linked to climatic changes giving interesting results for this poorly studied interval.
