Sea level can drop on the order of 100 meters. During the last glacial maximum, when the last ice age was in full swing and continental ice masses variously reached their greatest extents, considered to be the millennia centered about 21,000 calendar years ago, sea level reached 120 meters (~400 feet) lower than recent eustatic mean sea level, opening up nearly the same amount of formerly submerged land in habitable areas as was lost to ice cover and permafrost during the last ice age.
