A Chronological Bible Reading-22 Joktan and Peleg

Genesis 10:25 Eber begat Peleg and Joktan

I Chronicles 1:19-25 The earth was divided

Genesis 11:16 Eber lived 34 years and begat Peleg.

"The earth was divided," what does that mean?
At this point the flood was not so long ago. I believe that the waters were still receding and changing the lay of the land. Dividing currently seen land and exposing of others. The land may have moved during the flood because the bible says that "the fountains of the great deep opened up," Genesis 7:11. So something was going on under the water. However I think that during Peleg's time the Bible is referring to the changing of the geography of the land due to the settling of the water.
