Where did the water go after Noah's Flood?

globe (10K)

According to the Bible, the whole earth was once covered by floodwaters, but the landscape was greatly different before the worldwide Flood of Noah's time.

So after the Flood, what happened to all the water?

Psalm 104 tells us that the waters covered the mountains (verse 6), then God rebuked them and they fled (verse 7).

The mountains rose and the valleys sank down (verse 8), and God set a boundary for the seas so they would never again cover the whole earth (verse 9).

It seems that at one time, earth's land surfaces were all together — not separated by the oceans and seas we find today. The Flood would have drastically altered the shape of the pre-Flood land surface.

Around three-quarters of the earth's surface is now covered with water, so the waters from the Flood have mostly gone into the seas and deeper ocean valleys that exist today. Some may still be held as ice around Antarctica and the North Pole.

The point to emphasize is that the high mountains and deep ocean trenches we find today were much more level before the Flood. The deeper ocean valleys today are holding most of the extra water.
