Abstract

This thesis examines the benthic foraminifera composition in specific sedimentary intervals from the core M0079 recovered from the Corinth rift in the framework of IODP Expedition 381. These intervals are parts of the lithostratigraphic subunit 1.3 (LSU 1.3) deposited from 154.47 mbsf to 179.8 mbsf. LSU 1.3 appears to coincide broadly with the prevalence of MIS 5 which is dated between 75 ka and 122 ka. The aim of this work is to assess the variation of the seafloor environmental conditions of the Corinth gulf within this period.
