Okay peoples so I had a thought and I wanted to share it okay so tell me what u think. So some peoples say that the earth is getting warming and okay that as that happens the icebergs will melt and that means the oceans will rise. But water is one of the rare chemicals that possess the property of greater density in liquid phase, which is why ice floats in a glass of water, and in point, why icebergs float rather than rest on the ocean floor. Incidentally, the fact that water, crucial for life on this earth, possesses this property is fascinating to me, coz if it dint then every winter many freshwater ecosystems would be seriously damaged, with the subsequent cascade of consequences elsewhere in the environment. Now part of icebergs is seen above the water but most of dem is below the surface, where they displace more volume as a solid then they would as a liquid. So my questions peoples is that if icebergs melt, wouldn't that result in a net decrease in the volume of the ocean and concurrently, in a decrease in ocean sea levels? I'm not debating global warming here, at all. I just had this thought about ice and water and all and was curious what the actual explanation was. Is the focus more on the runoff from glaciers? Or does the fact that at least a portion of an iceberg protrudes above the surface offset the net decrease in volume when one melts? Whats the deal, yo?
