Evidence from stable isotopes and a variety of proxies from two Ontario lakes demonstrate that many of the late glacial-to-early Holocene events that are well known from the North Atlantic seaboard, such as the Gerzensee-Killarney Oscillation (also known as the Intra-Allerod Cold Period), Younger Dryas, and Preboreal Oscillation, also occurred in central North America. These results thus imply that climatic forcing acted in the same manner in both regions and that atmospheric circulation played… 
Synchronized TerrestrialAtmospheric Deglacial Records Around the North Atlantic
TLDR
A 150-year-long cooling in the early Preboreal, associated with rising Δ14C values, is evident in all records and indicates an ocean ventilation change, and box-model calculations suggest that they all may have been the result of increased freshwater forcing that inhibited the strength of the North Atlantic heat conveyor.
