Mega Flood 13000 ybp

New research from the University of Sheffield, which is published in the journal Nature, has identified a mega-flood path across North America which channelled melt-water from a giant ice sheet into the oceans. This triggered a rapid cooling period nearly 13,000 years ago, otherwise known as the Big Freeze or Younger Dryas.
