The map shows the present coastal outline in dashed lines, and is keyed to show the supposed areas of water, high lands, and very high mountains during the ice period, and shows the limits of glacial conditions (receding), the steppes, marsh lands, frozen lands, and direction of advancing forests. The Mediterranean basin is shown as two separate bodies of water not attached to the Atlantic, the region of remnant glaciers in Scandinavia, and the returning sea in the North Sea basin.|
