Figure F13. A. Scheme to calculate the middle Miocene eustatic fall from Sites 1193 and 1194. Seismic line MAR13 displaying sediment geometries between Sites 1193 and 1194. Seismic megasequences are indicated at right. The onlapping unit below the Megasequence B/C boundary was deposited during the Zones N12-N14 lowstand, exposing the MP2 platform top. B, C. Reconstructing the needed Zones N12-N14 sea level fall assuming local isostasy, paleowater depths, and physical properties data. For explanation see "Sea Level Variability and Magnitude Recorded by Sediment Sequences on the Marion Plateau." MS = megasequence, SL = sea level.
