We flood Catastrophist would interpret the Black Sea rising this way:
During the Ice Age that Followed the global flood catastrophe, the Ice
sheets captured much of the oceans waters, significantly lowering the sea
levels. The Black Sea was much smaller and lower because of the Ice. Over
the last 200 years of the Ice age as the Ice melted, all the feeder rivers
to the Black sea -- Danube, Dnestr, Dnepr, Don -- were in high flood state
(Besides those coming from Turkey). The Black Sea grew rapidly in size and
depth over settlements along the shore. The Mediterranean also rose in
elevation due to the melt of the ice. If there was any movement of water
through the Bosphorus Strait it probably was not catastrophic (at least to
the extent proposed by Pitman and Ryan).
