One way to talk about the size of the ice sheet is to consider how much sea level would rise if the ice sheet were to melt. Check out the sea level piece above (click on it to start). You can download this to your own computer as a ppt, and then move on to the activity page below to see for yourself how melting ice equals sea level rise!
