Séminaire de Tectonique et de Géomagnétisme Flyer: DeadSeaFlyer.pdf The Levant is located between two major climate belts and its late Dead Sea Quaternary climate history reflect global shifts of the major ocean- atmospheric systems. Monitoring these shifts is important for understanding the mechanism of past climatic changes and for inferring future climate patterns that are so critical in our evaluation of the global warming effects. The Levant was the cradle of human prehistory and a major region of migration and settling of our ancient ancestors. Their cultural development was intimately associated with climate-environmental changes in the region.
