European Ice Sheet Collapse At End Of Last Ice Age Led To Chaos

To put it bluntly, the collapse of the ice sheet led to dramatic and extreme flooding events, sea level rise, and, perhaps more interestingly, the formation of “mega-rivers” that swept some of the continent nearly clean at various points. These events of course led to serious changes to ecological systems and environments, and to the human habitability of the region
