Hi Paul -
You left out of your list my brief summary over on academia.
Despite the fact that I was the first to write about the comet impact that killed the mammoth and mastodon
(2005, a full two years before Kennett and Firestone, and we all remember the ration of s**t I was fed here when they first published)
that happens a lot, as I think that it is not likely that the Carolina Bays were formed then.
For your information, gamma rays are produced in large hyper velocity impacts.There were two comet impacts at the start of the Holocene, and the gamma ray spikes from them coincide with the melt water pulses.Neither impact coincided with the Younger Dryas.
