Freshwater outbursts to the oceans from glacial Lake Agassiz and their role in climate change during the last deglaciation
J. Teller, D. Leverington, J. Mann
Geology
1 April 2002
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

Freshwater Forcing of Abrupt Climate Change During the Last Glaciation
P. Clark, S. Marshall, G. Clarke, S. Hostetler, J. M. Licciardi, J. Teller
Geology, Medicine
Science

13 July 2001
TLDR
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

Paleohydraulics of the last outburst flood from glacial Lake Agassiz and the 8200 BP cold event
G. Clarke, D. Leverington, J. Teller, A. Dyke
Geology
1 February 2004
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

Routing of meltwater from the Laurentide Ice Sheet during the Younger Dryas cold episode
W. Broecker, J. Kennett, +4 authors W. Wolfli
Geology
Nature

1 December 1989
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

Identification of Younger Dryas outburst flood path from Lake Agassiz to the Arctic Ocean
J. Murton, M. Bateman, S. Dallimore, J. Teller, Zhirong Yang
Environmental Science, MedicineNature
1 April 2010
TLDR
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

Glacial Lake Agassiz: A 5000 yr history of change and its relationship to the δ18O record of Greenland
J. Teller, D. Leverington
Geology
1 May 2004
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

The Late Quaternary vegetational and climatic history of Easter Island
J. Flenley, A. King, J. Jackson, C. Chew, J. Teller, M. Prentice
Geology
1 June 1991
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

Alternative routing of Lake Agassiz overflow during the Younger Dryas: new dates, paleotopography, and a re-evaluation
J. Teller, M. Boyd, Zhirong Yang, P. S. Kor, A. M. Fard
Geology
1 September 2005
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

Freshwater Outburst from Lake Superior as a Trigger for the Cold Event 9300 Years Ago
Shi-Yong Yu, S. Colman, +5 authors J. Teller
Geology, Medicine
Science

4 June 2010
TLDR
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

Superlakes, Megafloods, and Abrupt Climate Change
G. Clarke, D. Leverington, J. Teller, A. Dyke
Geology, Medicine
Science

15 August 2003
TLDR
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
