>>Hey, Watch it! If I had been using a single source, I
would have said so ... and quoted from it. My data are from
books, journals, lab reports, and other scientific reports
from across more than 50 years. I have known specifically
about the geology and marine biology of the Med basin and
the general area for more than 35 years. During one
delightful 3-year period I was fortunate to have translated
or re-written the English of reports, and drawn many maps of
both the coast and the bed of the Med for an Oceanographic
Institute ... and have always kept up with new material on
the subjects.

Nobody can cover everything, so I don't know if the above
book goes into the hauntingly familiar similarities between
the formation of the mountain spurs that poke into the Dead
Sea basin and the spurs at the undersea sills of the
Med/Atlantic and Black Sea/Med interfaces...<<

Hopefully, I did say "one of" ... <g>

It looks as though some of those articles you mention are
reproduced here. Of course, I did not mean to suggest that
your knowledge was limited to a single reference volume!
