This article is not about the crisis in Spain, we just recover a little bit from this dip lately.
But About the mediterranean Sea crisis many millions years ago.
I am not a earth scientific person,so you are reading this on your own risk!
But the reason why I put this on the blog is that; I find often fossil stones of sea shells in the surroundings of our Finca Terra personas in the Comarca Priorat on a altitude of 700 meters!
|fossils from the area.|
A little googling and i find the reason: The mediterranean crisis.
A lot of years ago ( 6 million) the mediterranean sea was cut of from the Atlantic ocean. And it dried out with a huge amount of sea salt left. A warm period at that time! The have drilled in the past (around 1970) and found 1000/1500 meters of salt layers under the mediterranean sea floor.
So the mediterranean sea fill itself up. And the opening at gibraltar is a fact..
