Beringia ocean levels and 'kelp highway' (IMAGE) University of Kansas Caption Glacial Isostatic Adjustment (GIA) reconstructions of Beringia at 30,000 BP (as early as ice history data go), 20,500 BP (Last Glacial Maximum), 10,500 BP (just before the Bering Strait opened) and 8000 BP (shortly before inundation was complete). Potential kelp habitat is highlighted in bright red at depths of 3 to 20 m, which are suitable for bull kelp wherever rocky bottom may occur. Credit Dobson, et al.
