The work of Liviu Giosan, the co-founder of the Ad Astra project and a member of the Ad Astra association, is mentioned in Nature (vol. 430, 12 August 2004, pp. 718-719). Siddall, Giosan and their collaborators have modelled a flood that possibly surged onto the Black Sea about 10,000 years ago, through what is now the Bosporus Strait. This flood has possibly inspired the biblical story of Noah’s flood.
