The Earth's principle ice-secured landmass is Antarctica at the South Pole, with around 90 percent of the world's ice (and 70 percent of its crisp water). Antarctica is secured with ice a normal of 2,133 meters (7,000 feet) thick. In the event that the greater part of the Antarctic ice dissolved, ocean levels around the globe would climb around 61 meters (200 feet). Anyway the normal temperature in Antarctica is -37°c, so the ice there is in no threat of liquefying. Indeed, in many parts of the mainland it never gets above solidifying
