With all due respect, this is not the confirmation the author wishes it to be.  In particular, no mechanism is suggested for how the water in the ringwoodite would have been released in the manner described.

Precisely.  For example, per Wiki.....

In 1997, William Ryan and Walter Pitman published evidence that a massive flooding of the Black Sea occurred about 5600 BC through the Bosphorus, following this scenario.[3] Before that date, glacial meltwater had turned the Black and Caspian Seas into vast freshwater lakes draining into the Aegean Sea. As glaciers retreated, some of the rivers emptying into the Black Sea declined in volume and changed course to drain into the North Sea.[4] The levels of the lakes dropped through evaporation, while changes in worldwide hydrology caused overall sea level to rise. The rising Mediterranean finally spilled over a rocky sill at the Bosporus. The event flooded 155,000 km2 (60,000 sq mi) of land and significantly expanded the Black Sea shoreline to the north and west. According to the researchers, "40 km3 (10 cu mi) of water poured through each day, two hundred times the flow of the Niagara Falls... The Bosporus flume roared and surged at full spate for at least three hundred days."

Many ancient cultures have a variety of traditions that speak of a great flood, and there is ample evidence of many great floods over the millenia that could be attributed to any number of causes.  Noah's 40 days and 40 nights of endless rain could well describe the aftermath of an ocean strike by a large meteoroid.

The point is that nobody alive today can say with any certainty exactly what happened or when, but that does not dispute the truth in the Bible that such an event did occur.
