Interesting Paper About Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis

Interesting Paper About Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis

There is a new and interesting paper about the Younger
Dryas Impact Hypothesis. It is:

van Hoesel, A., W. Z. Hoek, G. M. Pennock, and M. R. Drury,
2014, The Younger Dryas impact hypothesis: a critical review.
Quaternary Science Reviews. vol. 83, pp. 95–114.

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/02773791/83/supp/C

This paperconcludes that convincing evidence for this hypothesis
remains debatable and that some of the evidence used to support
the Younger Dryas impact hypothesis either cannot fully be
explained or is contradictory. This paper also concludes that
there is an apparent age discrepancy of up to two centuries
between different sites associated with the proposed impact
event and offers alternative interpretations of it.
