Short summary
Amongst the most devastating marine catastrophes that can occur in coastal areas are storms and tsunamis, which may seriously endanger human society. In a sediment core from the Mar Menor (SE Spain), we discovered eight coarse-grained layers which document marine incursions during periods of intense storm activity or tsunami events. These periods of surge events seem to coincide with the coldest periods in Europe during the late Holocene, suggesting a control by a climatic mechanism.
