Default Carolina Bay Formation: A REALLY bad day!

I have been fascinated with the mystery of the Carolina Bays found along our coastal plain for nearly two decades now. With our access to information and new technologies there has never been a better time than now to solve these enigmas. I really think we are close with this one, and a few others, and want to know what you all think.

This is a presentation I have been working on for a few weeks...if you have a few minutes (20 min), check it out:

I'll have to watch it tomorrow. I have always been fascinated by them as well. Lots of them in South Georgia. Arabia, Guest Mill Pond, Roundabout Swamp, Tenmile, Banks lake, etc. Weird how they have that south eastern side that is sandy.

Great presentation. I'd never heard of Carolina bays. Seems to me you are onto exactly what happened. The lidar really brings out how many are really there. I look forward to more videos

I watched the video but missed what might have happened. What caused the crater in Michigan? Did this send a large chunk of ice south?

A comet fragment which Iíll be discussing further in my next video...working on the presentation now. And it sent tens of thousands of large chunks of ice (probably more like giant slush balls).

I can't imagine a sheet of ice two miles thick in some areas covering such a large area.
The coastline being out farther is interesting as well.
