Last year the National Geographic looked how the continents do with no ice on Earth.
IF ALL THE ICE MELTED
Explore the world’s new coastlines if sea level rises 216 feet.
The maps here show the world as it is now, with only one difference: All the ice on land has melted and drained into the sea, raising it 216 feet and creating new shorelines for our continents and inland seas.
There are more than five million cubic miles of ice on Earth, and some scientists say it would take more than 5,000 years to melt it all. If we continue adding carbon to the atmosphere, we’ll very likely create an ice-free planet, with an average temperature of perhaps 80 degrees Fahrenheit instead of the current 58.
erm i think the map is wrong. scotland for example should gain alot of land
do to sinking sea levels at their shores. as ice sheets excert
to me the map looks like they just used the expected average sea level rise
and added that instead of doing the proper calculations. also nowhere in
the text i could find anything about gravitational pull. you should ask if
they considered gravitational pull from ice sheets, and if not ,remove the
