The variation of the eustatic sea level with time has been reconstructed using oxygen isotope analysis of deep sea cores, the dating of marine terraces, and high resolution oxygen isotope sampling from ocean basins and modern ice caps.
A drop of eustatic sea level by about 60 m to 120 m lower than present-day levels, commencing around 30,000 years BP, caused the revealing of Beringia as a durable and extensive geographic feature connecting Siberia with Alaska.
After covering up the Mountain Meadows massacre for years, the church is supporting an exhaustive Mormon research effort to leave no stone unturned.
The findings, unflattering in spots, are being broadcast worldwide in the latest edition of the church's magazine.
The settlement of the Americas is of intense interest to archaeologists and anthropologists.
