Abstract

‘Megaflood’ refers to very-large-scale, high-energy catastrophic outbursts of water from natural and artificial reservoirs. For example, such outbursts may be caused by the collapse of a natural dam, or by the rapid introduction into a large waterbody of significant amounts of rocks and/or ice. Megafloods have periodically occurred in Northern Asia during the Pleistocene and probably during the Holocene as well. This special issue of International Geology Review presents a collection of papers dealing with various aspects of this fascinating topic.
