The Messinian Salinity Crisis (MSC), also referred to as the Messinian Event, and in its latest stage as the Lago Mare event, was a geological event during which the Mediterranean Sea went into a cycle of partly or nearly complete desiccation throughout the latter part of the Messinian age of the Miocene epoch, from to Ma (million years ago).

Thus evidence from the Red Sea suggests that the Messinian evaporites of the Mediterranean could not have formed in a deep, barred basin.

Several kilometers of epeirogenic uplift of circum-Mediterranean platforms isolated Mediterranean basins and probably restricted their access to. Messinian Palaeontology Papers in honour of Carlo Sturani’s outstanding contributions in geology and palaeontology Studies of Messinian sediments in the circum-Mediterranean area had their first strong boost during the early part of the ’s, leading to the development of the Dessication theory, which involved the whole Mediterranean basin.

The Messinian was introduced by Swiss stratigrapher Karl Mayer-Eymar in Its name comes from the Italian city of Messina on Sicily, where the Messinian evaporite deposit is of the same age. The base of the Messinian is at the first appearance of the planktonic foram species Globorotalia conomiozea and is stratigraphically in the middle of magnetic chronozone C3Br.1r.

A history of geodynamic evolution of the Mediterranean leading to the salinity crisis is outlined, based on the ‘desiccated deep-basin model’. An accurate portrayal of the crisis is presented. Messinian Stage, uppermost division of Miocene rocks, representing all rocks deposited worldwide during the Messinian Age ( million to million years ago) of the Neogene Period (23 million to million years ago).

The Messinian Stage is named for marine strata near Messina, Sicily. The. In a previous presentation at the Messinian Seminar 3 (Malaga, ), Geerlings described the distribution of planktonic foraminifera in the Los Perales section of the Sorbas basin.

The same section has now been analysed quantitatively for its benthonic foraminifera content, to serve as a standard for our investigations in the adjoining basins. Example of the Messinian succession of facies from the section North-West of Alba (Tertiary Piedmontese Basin) as drawn by the Italian geologist Sturani in a Seminar in October (LOZAR et al.

Newly acquired 3D seismic datasets over the Eastern Mediterranean Basin are used to image the massive Messinian salt body. Accurate imaging of this salt body is critical to the precise definition of the prospective pre-salt geological section.

The availability of recent well logs, which are the only ones to date to have penetrated the entire Messinian salt sequence, enables a clear definition. The detailed facies analysis of the Messinian evaporites in the western Mediterranean reveals the presence of many different depositional settings and associated deposits.

Here we illustrate the characteristics of the most important facies associations in the framework of the age model of Roveri et al. ().Primary Lower Gypsum (PLG), 1st. Among the known ancient basin‐wide evaporite deposits, the Late Miocene Mediterranean evaporites show the greatest extent.

These evaporites, mainly Ca‐sulfates and halite with minor amount of K‐Mg salts, were deposited in a very short time interval at the end of the Messinian stage, during the so‐called Messinian Salinity Crisis (MSC).

Calcium sulphate sediments were deposited mainly on the broad northern margins of the basin, on vast evaporite shoals (mainly as fine-grained microbialite gypsum) and in large shallow saline pans (as coarse-crystalline selenites).
