Wilson of the College of Wooster, he reported that sea levels were considerably less stable than earlier thought: They oscillated up and down by 13 to 20 feet over a few thousand years about 120,000 years ago
during the Last Interglacial, a warm period when the climate resembled today's.
If sea levels only 120,000 years ago
were about the same as they are now, then the global ratio of ice-to-water was probably similar to what it is today.
In the past year, Homo sapiens remains have been found at multiple sites in southern and central China, going back to between 70,000 and 120,000 years ago
sapiens left the continent as early as 120,000 years ago
, dispersing east and south, from the Arabian Peninsula or the eastern Mediterranean, archaeologist Robin Dennell of the University of Exeter in England writes in Nature.
Their findings will indicate whether the ice sheet melted at the warmest point between the two most recent global ice ages, around 120,000 years ago
, when sea levels rose by up to six metres.
Researchers who recently drilled out some samples found that during two warmer periods - one of them about 120,000 years ago
and another about 10,000 years ago, both following ice ages - there would have been (http://www.

, Dead Sea came close to drying up entirely, researchers under a drilling project have found.
Ancient people left Africa as early as 120,000 years ago
, so the Chinese fossils might be those of early migrants who evolved in relative isolation for tens of thousands of years without contributing genetically to people today, Curnoe suggests.
It is known that some 120,000 years ago
- a mere tremor in the eyelid of time - the mean temperature of the world was five degrees warmer than it is now.
One of the studies found that the ancestry of the natives of Papua New Guinea, north of Australia, could be traced back to an earlier migration that occurred 120,000 years ago
The researchers estimate that the lake vanished 120,000 years ago
