Constraints on Lake Agassiz discharge through the late-glacial Champlain Sea (St. Lawrence Lowlands, Canada) using salinity proxies and an estuarine circulation model
B. Katz, R. Najjar, T. Cronin, J. A. Rayburn, M. Mann
Geology
2011
During the last deglaciation, abrupt freshwater discharge events from proglacial lakes in North America, such as glacial Lake Agassiz, are believed to have drained into the North Atlantic Ocean,… 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

Geology
2015
Abstract Debate is ongoing about the source(s) and paths of meltwater that drained into the North Atlantic Ocean at the time of the Younger Dryas (YD), especially the eastern route from glacial Lake… 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.

Opening of glacial Lake Agassiz’s eastern outlets by the start of the Younger Dryas cold period
David J. Leydet, David J. Leydet, +10 authors M. Caffee
Geology
2018
The Younger Dryas (12.9 ± 0.1 to 11.7 ± 0.1 ka) was a return to cold conditions in the Northern Hemisphere during the last deglaciation. This climatic event was hypothesized to have been caused by a… Expand

Megaflooding associated with glacial Lake Agassiz
T. Fisher
Geology
2020
Abstract Significant baseline and episodic megaflooding from glacial Lake Agassiz was routed to the south, east and north coasts of North America over the lake’s nearly 6000 year history. The five… Expand

Geology
2016
Abstract. Over the last glacial cycle, ice sheets and the resultant glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) rearranged river systems. As these riverine threads that tied the ice sheets to the sea were… Expand
Oxygen-isotope Variations in Post-glacial Lake Ontario

Geology
2016
Abstract The role of glacial meltwater input to the Atlantic Ocean in triggering the Younger Dryas (YD) cooling event has been the subject of controversy in recent literature. Lake Ontario is ideally… Expand

TLDR
An ensemble of simulations of the drainage chronology of the North American ice sheet is analysed in order to identify the geographical release points of freshwater forcing during deglaciation and finds that the largest combined meltwater/iceberg discharge was directed into the Arctic Ocean. Expand

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
