Abstract Lake Agassiz was the largest lake in North America during the last deglaciation. As the Laurentide Ice Sheet (LIS) retreated, large volumes of water stored in this proglacial lake were… Expand
It is found that periods of increased freshwater flow to the North Atlantic occurred at the same time as reductions in the formation of North Atlantic Deep Water, thus providing a mechanism for observed climate variability that may be generally characteristic of times of intermediate global ice volume.Expand
Abstract During the last deglaciation of North America, huge proglacial lakes formed along the southern margin of the Laurentide Ice Sheet. The largest of these was glacial Lake Agassiz, which formed… Expand
ROOTH1 proposed that the Younger Dryas cold episode, which chilled the North Atlantic region from 11,000 to 10,000 yr BP, was initiated by a diversion of meltwater from the Mississippi drainage to… Expand
A large flood into the Arctic Ocean at the start of the Younger Dryas leads us to reject the widespread view that Agassiz overflow at this time was solely eastward into the North Atlantic Ocean. Expand
Lake Agassiz was the largest lake in North America during the last period of deglaciation; the lake extended over a total of 1.5 × 10 6 km 2 before it drained at ca. 7.7 14 C ka (8.4 cal. [calendar]… Expand
Easter Island occupies an exceptionally isolated position in the south Pacific Ocean. It is entirely volcanic, and is famous for its giant statues. Late Quaternary sediments have been investigated in… Expand
Abstract Overflow from glacial Lake Agassiz has been implicated in affecting late-glacial ocean circulation and climate. The timing of the diversion of Lake Agassiz overflow away from its southern… Expand
Reconstructing lake-level changes in the Superior basin suggests that a rapid fall of lake level of about 45 meters occurred 9300 years ago, possibly due to the sudden failure of a drift dam, and ascribes the widespread climate anomaly ~9300 years ago to this freshwater outburst delivered to the North Atlantic Ocean through the Lake Huron–North Bay–Ottawa River–St. Expand
The timing points strongly to the outburst flood from a vast, ice-dammed glacial lake in North America as the trigger of the 8200-year climate event. Expand
