This map shows how the terrain may have appeared during the Last Glacial Maximum, around 21,000 years ago, when sea levels were approximately 125 meters (410 feet) below present. This map does not include any lakes of this time period, besides the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea which are shown here at -125m. The colouring of the map is based on height, and is not meant to represent the climate or vegetation. This map also does not account for any geological or tectonic changes in the landscape since this time period, as the map was made using a modern terrain map with a lowered sea level to simulate an approximate representation of the ice age coastlines.

Cheers for this!   I know of the Blue Marble programme, but what is the map resource used?  I need to do some maps for a uni project. You help would be most appreciated. If I use your map... I will credit you.

I didn't use any map resource like that, I made these maps myself. The bathymetry data for this one comes from EMODnet.
