Brooks, A.C. Goodyear, T.A. Ferguson, A.G. Perrotti, S. Mitra, A. Listecki, B. King, D.J. Mallinson, C.S. Lane, B. Shapiro, J. Knapp, A. West, D.L. Carlson, W. Wolbach, T.R. Them, S.M. Harris, and S. Pyne-O’Donnell. 2019. Sediment Cores from White Pond, South Carolina, contain a platinum anomaly, pyrogenic carbon peak, and coprophilous spore decline at 12.8 ka. Scientific Reports volume 9, Article number: 15121 (2019) https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-019-51552-8 Regardless of how the platinum anomaly is interpreted, White Pond, a Carolina Bay predates it and the Younger Dryas. Thus, the above paper further supports the idea that the Carolina Bays are not connected to Younger Dryas event as concluded by: Schaetzl, R.J., Sauck, W., Heinrich, P.V., Colgan, P.M. and Holliday, V.T., 2019.
