The depth profiles of excess Pb-210, Cs-137, elemental sulfur, reactive iron and porewater hydrogen sulfide of a western central basin sediment core in the Black Sea collectively point to the presence of a 20 cm thick reactive iron rich turbidite layer. This layer was most probably deposited there after the 1999 earthquakes in Northwestern Turkey, which caused oxidation of porewater hydrogen sulfide and anomalous accumulation of the product elemental sulfur in the solid phase.
