(1 meter =3.28 feet)
a. 500 feet
b. 16.4 feet
c. 50 feet
d. 164 feet

How many meters would it rise?

would you be able to help?

you need to find the volume of the ice sheet
Then you need to figure how many m^3 of water that would be when melted
Then you need to find the area of the earth's water surface.
Then divide the icewater volume (m^3) by the earth's watersurface area (m^2), giving the depth increase (m)

Ice Sheet Volume
• Total volume of ice contained in the ice sheet: 2.931 x 106 km3 (Bamber et al. 2001)
o This is the equivalent to an additional 7 m of global sea level rise.
• Ice sheet volume: 2.911080129751762 x 1012 m3 (calculations by R. Huff using Bamber et al. 2001)
• Total ice volume estimated at 2.620 x 106 km3 (Ohmura et al., 1999)
o This is the equivalent to an additional 6.7 m of global sea level rise, without considering the effect of hydroisostacy.

7*3.28 = 23 feet
If that is all correct
