English: Northern Hemisphere glaciation during the last ice ages. The accumulation of 3 to 4 km thick ice sheets caused a sea level lowering of about 120 m. Also, the Alps and the Himalayas were covered by glaciers. Winter sea ice coverage was much more limited in the south.

Español: Glaciación del hemisferio del norte durante el último periodo glaciar. La acumulación de 3-4 kilometros de hielo hizo descender el nivel del mar alrededor de 120 metros. También los Alpes y el Himalaya fueron cubiertos por glaciares. El hielo marítimo durante el invierno era más reducido en el sur.

Italiano: Glaciazione dell'emisfero boreale durante l'ultima glaciazione. L'accumulo di strati di ghiaccio spessi da 3 a 4 km causò un abbassamento del livello del mare di circa 120 m e le Alpi e la catena dell'Himalaya erano coperti da ghiacciai. Durante l'inverno, i ghiacci sul mare erano molto più ridotti a sud.
Polski: Zlodowacenie półkuli północnej podczas maksimum ostatniego zlodowacenia. Utworzenie warstwy pokrywy śnieżnej o grubości od 3 do 4 km spowodowało globalne obniżenie poziomu mórz o około 120 m. Także Alpy i Himalaje zostały pokryte przez lodowce. W czasie zimy pokrycie morza lodem było znacznie ograniczone na południu.
Русский: Северное полушарие Земли во время максимального оледенения. Уровень Мирового океана упал на 120 м из-за расхода воды на 3–4-километровые ледники. Льдами были покрыты Альпы и Гималаи. Зимние льды в море простирались не столь далеко.
Українська: Північна півкуля Землі під час останнього заледеніння. Рівень Світового океану впав на 120 м через витрати води на 3–4-кілометрові льодовики. Льодом були вкриті Альпи та Гімалаї. Зимовий лід в морі простягався не дуже далеко.
