Hi Kristin and Lee,

about Black Sea and level ow water, along with the flows of water during millennia on Black Sea,
here below pls find an interesting article appeared on ""Archaeology in Bulgaria" web site magazine
dated October 10, 2016, which is very accurate and helpfull to understand what "really" went on:

Quote

Hypotheses that the Black Sea became saline and connected with the global ocean as a result of a catastrophic flood ca. 6,000-5,000 BC, which have even been linked by speculations to the Biblical Deluge and the story of Noah’s Ark, seem to be unjustified, according to the initial findings of a large-scale underwater archaeology project taking place in Bulgaria’s waters, the Black Sea M.A.P.

Instead, preliminary conclusions based on the latest data collected in the largest underwater archaeology expedition in the Black Sea to date indicate that the Black Sea, formerly a fresh water lake, became saline and connected with the World Ocean at the end of the last Ice Age, from about 18,000 to about 12,000 years ago, Bulgarian archaeologists have revealed.
.................
The Black Sea Maritime Archaeology Project (Black Sea M.A.P.), which started in September 2015, is being carried out by the Center for Maritime Archaeology of the University of Southampton, the Sozopol-based Center for Underwater Archaeology at the Bulgarian Ministry of Culture, and the National Institute and Museum of Archaeology in Sofia.

The three year project, which is funded by the Expedition and Education Foundation (EEF), is also assisted by the University of Connecticut, USA; the Maritime Archaeological Research Institute, Södertörn (MARIS), Södertörn University, Sweden; and the Hellenic Center for Marine Research, Greece.

Which is imoortant and on what I would like to draw your attention is this passage:
Quote

The preliminary conclusions of the Black Sea M.A.P. scholars after the underwater expedition are that when the warming at the end of the last Ice Age and the melting of the glaciers started about 18,000 years ago, the Black Sea coast of what is today Bulgaria was located about 60 km to the east, Vagalinski has revealed, as cited by Nova TV.

“And it can be seen that dunes, microorganism, and others were submerged because this means that the sea level rose by about 100 meters,” he has stated.

“In itself, this result, of course, these are still preliminary data, seems to be refuting the idea that Black Sea was where the Biblical Deluge and the story about Noah took place,” adds the Director of the National Institute and Museum of Archaeology in Sofia.

This suggests that the Black Sea was a fresh water lake up until the end of the last Ice Age when it went saline and became connected with the World Ocean through the Bosphorus Straits as a result of a gradual rise in the sea level as the globe’s extensive ice sheets covering large parts of the globe were melting.

The article is quite long and full of reference.

Enjoy !

Nice and bright Day

Ivano
