I can’t believe you wrote this……  the maths work like this:

GREENLAND:  Area –   1,736,095 km2 x average ice thickness  1.5 km = volume of ice  = 2, 604,100 km3

ANTARCTICA:  Area – 11,965,700 km2 x average ice thickness 2.45km = volume of ice  = 29,315,965 km3

TOTAL volume of ice NOT floating on oceans (and not including glaciers on other continents) = 31,920,065 km3

Now, ONE cubic km (km3) is a huge volume by any standard.  32 million of them?

Global Ocean area = 360 M km2.  Spread 32,000,000 km3 over 360,000,000km2 and you get 0.888 km sea level rise, or 89 m or in your stupid measurements, 292 feet.
