The information about the paleo-climate of the Mediterranean region is of special importance for investigating the possible impact of future climate change on the hydrological cycle. This is due to the location of this region inbetween two climatic belts: the northern zone dominated by the westerlies which bring humidty from the Atlantic ocean, and the southern area dominated by the Sahara desert belt. During winter the westerlies humid belt moves to the south, while during the summer the Sahara belt moves to the north.
