Abstract

Late Wisconsin floods from glacial Lake Missoula occurred between approximately 16 and 12 ka BP. Many floods occurred| some were demonstrably cataclysmic. After resolution of the scabland's origin by cataclysmic outburst flooding from glacial Lake Missoula, research since 1960 emphasized details of flood magnitudes frequency, routing and number. Major advances have been made in the study of low-energy, rhythmically bedded sediments that accumulated in flood slack-water areas.
