Abstract. We describe a database of Last Interglacial (Marine Isotopic Stage 5) sea-level proxies for the Western Mediterranean region. The database was compiled reviewing the information reported in 179 published studies and contains 371 sea-level datapoints (sea-level index points and marine or terrestrial limiting points) and 304 associated dated samples. The database follows the standardized WALIS template and is available as Cerrone et al, 2021b (

Short summary
The manuscript is a critical review and standardization of c. 180 published scientific papers to compile a Last Interglacial sea-level database for the Western Mediterranean sector. In the database, c. 370 sea-level datapoints associated with c. 300 dated samples are included. The relative sea-level datapoints and associated ages have been ranked on a 0 to 5 scale score.
