In a follow up on my previous reply re: land based ice in Antarctica and Greenland and the amount that sea level will rise if they melt:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/8387137.stm

“Sea levels are likely to rise by about 1.4m (4ft 6in) globally by 2100 as polar ice melts, according to a major review of climate change in Antarctica. Conducted by the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR), it says that warming seas are accelerating melting in the west of the continent.”

(I was correct that should all of the Antarctica ice sheets melt it would raise the sea level by 64 meters but given the cold reserves there it’s not likely.)

As for Greenland:

“Melting of the entire sheet would raise sea levels globally by about 7m (20ft).”
