Breakthrough in studying ancient DNA from Doggerland that
separates the UK from Europe, University of Warwick, July 16, 2020
[www.sciencedaily.com]

Scientists have studied sedimentary ancient DNA (sedaDNA)
from sediment deposits in the southern North Sea, an area
which has not previously been linked to a tsunami that
occurred 8150 years ago.

The open access paper is:

Characterisation of the Storegga Tsunami and Its Impact on
the Early Holocene Landscapes of the Southern North Sea.
