Arctic freshwater forcing of the Younger Dryas cold reversal
L. Tarasov, W. Peltier
Published 2 June 2005
Environmental Science, Geology, Medicine
Nature
The last deglaciation was abruptly interrupted by a millennial-scale reversal to glacial conditions, the Younger Dryas cold event. This cold interval has been connected to a decrease in the rate of… Expand

The Younger Dryas cold spell of the last deglaciation and related slowing of the Atlantic meridional overturning
Christelle Not, C. Hillaire‐Marcel
2012
The Younger Dryas cold spell of the last deglaciation and related slowing of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation have been linked to a large array of processes, notably an influx of fresh… Expand

Enhanced sea-ice export from the Arctic during the Younger Dryas.
Christelle Not, C. Hillaire‐Marcel
Geology, MedicineNature communications
2012
TLDR
The hypothesis of a glacial drainage event in the Canadian Arctic area, at the onset of the Younger Dryas, enhancing sea-ice production and drifting through the Arctic, then export through Fram Strait, towards Atlantic meridional overturning circulation sites of the northern North Atlantic is supported.

TLDR
It is found that the meridional overturning was nearly, or completely, eliminated during the coldest deglacial interval in the North Atlantic region, beginning with the catastrophic iceberg discharge Heinrich event H1, 17,500’yr ago, and declined sharply but briefly into the Younger Dryas cold event, about 12,700 yr ago.Expand
