ClassificationEdit

  • Bølling-Allerød Interstadial (14,700 to 12,700) - (Sometimes called the Allerød Oscillation for an area that the Bølling Oscillation does not occur. When it does, this period is sub-divided.) The last interstadial warming period in the last glacial period of the current ice age. The warming that preceded this caused ice sheet collapses that caused a sudden rise in ocean levels. The heat gains during this period were suddenly lost completely during the Big Freeze at the end.
    • Bølling Warming (14,650-14,310 YA) - Warming that gave rise to the Bølling-Allerød Interstadial, also known as Meltwater Pulse 1A. 1st of 9 pulses, the last which was 9000 YA. Precipitated by a collapse of ice shelves that caused a 14 meter rise in ocean levels and 15C rise in temperatures in a few tens of decades.
