Oh no, those are the Semnones, who are still a thing around this time periodI know that the Thuringii don't exist yet. What I was asking was who are the people living in the territory that they would occupy in later centuries at the height of their power. Is it the Naharvali? Or some other group?
Is that border between Khiva and Persia really accurate for 1800. Looks too modern to me.You may have seen this absolutely garbage map I made when I was 16
I was very embarassed by this
I HAVE REDEEMED MYSELF!
blank map will be on my deviantart, I only labelled this one to contrast with the old one
There is a 1600 map, which you can find here.Is there a world 1600 or 1602 map?
the amount of water that flows into the caspian and aral has ebbed and flowed over time, also the northern part of the caspian sea is in the caspian depression which is a lowland that results in the coastline changing dramatically depending on the level of the water in the caspian at any point in timeI had no idea the Caspian changed.... at all in recorded history, this is really interesting, know where I can find more info?
This video shows the changes way back to 120000 BP, it also has sources in the description that contain more information. Essentially, as has been stated above, the level of the Caspian and Aral Seas is determined through the outputs of the main tributaries, the Volga in the Caspian (around 80% of the inflow) and the Sir/Amu Darya in the Aral Sea. The amount of water in those rivers, and thus the amount of water in the seas, depends on the climate and the amount of ice in the mountains. Also, for the northern Caspian sea there is a very low inclination angle, which means that water can cover huge areas with meager increases in height. Currently, the Caspian is dropping by around 6 cm per year, which could lead to a loss of up to 18 meters in depth by the end of the century, and a total area loss greater than Serbia.I had no idea the Caspian changed.... at all in recorded history, this is really interesting, know where I can find more info?
Steppe geography is wild af!
Looks permanent, Uzbekistan is not going to stop taking water away for cotton and other crops, so the South Aral Sea is toast. However, the north has been recovering well since a dam was built impeding excess water to flow to the south and evaporate, even recovering part of its fishing industry. Plus the climate change models I've seen show a decrease in precipitation and an increase in evaporation in Central Asia, so that looks like a kill.Steppe geography is wild af!
But on the topic of the aral sea, does that mean that the Aral sea is going to regrow itself again? Or is it dying a much more sad, man-made, and/or permanent death?

a fix for azerbaijan, the coastline definitely seemed weird to me.

Really appreciating all these coastlines patches lately.
One for the old northern boundary of the Persian Gulf would be swell... just sayin’....
