The Mediterranean is a sea of very ancient formation, as exemplified by the marine fossils still found on the Alps. A direct descendant of Thetys, the primeval Ocean dividing the two massive continental blocks of our planet, today the Mediterranean is a small sea, whose only link to planetary oceanography is the narrow Straits of Gibraltar.
