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.
