Younger Dryas oscillation, global evidence

Björck, Svante LU (2007) In Encyclopedia of Quaternary Science 3. p.1987-1994
Abstract
The research history of the Younger Dryas oscillation is briefly described. Different Younger Dryas archives are presented and the methods by which the event is dated are discussed. Possible mechanisms behind the oscillation, its presence in northern and southern Hemisphere records and its possible role within a bi-polar seesaw climatic pattern are discussed.
