Ice Melt

Postby bwestfall@amherst1.com » Thu Apr 08, 2004 1:15 am

I know ice is lighter than water as it flotes. How much water is in one cubic meter of ice. As in if all the Greenland ice cap melted.

Area of worlds oceans 361,132,000.00 sq Km
Area of Greenlands ice 1,755,637.00 sq Km Depth overall ?

If one cubic meter melts I know it will not create a full sq meter of water.

Thanks

The density of ice is 917 kg/m³ *
