Eemian Globe

I've created a rotating globe modelled after the Eemian interglacial, ~125,000 years ago.


I've been using this model to illustrate a series of posts by Steve Brown on Skeptical Science:

My goal was to portray a plausible shape to the Eemian sea, which cut Scandinavia off from the mainland. While at it, I erased part of Florida (in case Eemian sea level reached the high estimate of 9 meters over current) and much of the deltas next to major rivers. Like all my projects, this is a work-in-progress and I invite comments and corrections.
