Thanks for the link Kristin. Ryan and Pitman thought this event occurred c. 5500-5000BC, but this paper settles on a date a few thousand years earlier.

From the paper:

Quote

The evidence supports the fourth hypothesis indicating that a sudden submergence of the Black Sea shelf and subsequent rapid salinification of its water at 9300 calendar years BP was a consequence of the inflow of Mediterranean water....

This retreat of the shoreline lasted a maximum of 200 years if the inflow of water was no faster than that occurring today. However, it likely was nearly instantaneous given flow rates at the time of the breaching, lasting no longer than 40 years and possibly as little as a decade according to hydraulic calculations. The absence of detritus from strata beneath the α erosion surface in the initial coquina further supports that the transgression was a rapid flooding event and not a slow ravinement.
