If the arctic melts how high will the water level be?

    Antarctica contains the majority of the ice in the world with approximately 90% of the worlds ice. If all of this ice was to melt the sea levels would rise about 200ft (60M). If all the ice on Earth was to melt the sea level would rise anywhere between 200-250ft (60-75m).

    The average temperature in Antarctica is -37F. With this low of a temperature it is very unlikely that such a ice melt will occur anytime soon. While there is proof that seas levels have risen a few inches in the last 100 years it will take a a catastrophic natural occurrence to cause the temperature to rise enough where all the ice will melt.
