    Interesting contribution, as extreme melting events indeed may play an increasingly important role in the (near)future.

     In the (Holocene) past, a multi-centennial period, 4400 to 4000 yrs ago may likewise have been characterized by frequent extreme (western) GIS melting, with widespread effects on fjord and shelf environment, and far-field impact on Labrador Sea ocean circulation ( see Kuijpers et al., session CL4.14).
