For two decades, the timing and rate of Holocene marine transgression and the level of the Black Sea prior to the transgression has been the focus of many geological, paleoecological, and archaeological studies. The potential importance of confirming or rejecting the catastrophic flood hypothesis by refining the chronology of the marine transgression and determining the water level of the early Ilolocene Black Sea (Neoeuxinian) lake is the aim of many ongoing Black Sea paleoecological studies. In a new study, we undertook to review a vast array of previous geological and paleoecological studies, including the original sites of Ryan et al. (1997) which were used to hypothesize a catastrophic Holocene flood, and we have obtained new data on the onset and rate of the early Holocene marine transgression using multidisciplinary studies of 19 cores from different parts of the Black Sea.
