“As the polar ice caps melt, ocean levels rise. It is expected that ocean levels can rise as much as 250 to 300 ft. ” This is wrong: 1. As sea ice melts, sea level does not rise. (Put ice cubes in a cup and add water. Because the ice was already there, it’s change of phase does not cause the water level in the cup to rise.) It is the melting of glaciers (ice on land) that adds to the sea level. The largest contributor to sea level rise is likely thermal expansion (as the water warms it takes up more space, increasing sea level) In addition it is VERY unlikely that we will observe sea level rises that high. There were several other errors in your post as well. If you are using this for class or planning to make further public posts, I can give you my email and I will help you make sure you’re not just posting sensationalized science- but actual science. It is just as important not to exaggerate as it is to not deny global climate change in general. -submission from thesaratea
All of the information in that post came from my Biology (BIOL 1111) teacher. I may have misunderstood some of the things he said, but as this is for a test that I have Tuesday, could you kindly tell me everything that I have wrong?
Cool I will check it out!
I am so sorry that link is no longer available. I did however find this link and I hope it helps. If you need something more or need a little help, feel free to ask me! I have no problem trying to clear some things up! And thanks for following
