Fatstep Posted April 30, 2007 Report Share Posted April 30, 2007 I'm not good at convincing, but something just struck me. If water expands as it freezes, that means it contracts when it thaws. I was wondering if there were any estimates at how much ice is below the surface on the earth(icebergs, Antarctica). What if all of the ice on Earth's surface melted, would the contraction of the water not make up for the extra volume gained by water going into the ocean? It seems like it would to me, and again, I am sorry I don't really know how to write these. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
