Description:

This animation of the Bering land bridge is based upon a digital elevation model and reveals large-scale patterns of shifting coastlines and environments as the land bridge evolved, depicted in 1,000 year steps. It begins with the Last Glacial Maximum, about 21,000 years ago, when the global sea level was approximately 120 m (400 ft) lower than today. Links are provided to additional information, GIS data, bathymetry, and regional atlases.
