RE: Ice Sheets Caused Massive Sea Level Change During Late Cretaceous



>>The ice sheets would not have reached the Antarctic coast, explaining
the relative warmth in Antarctica, but still could significantly alter
global sea level.<<

Wait a second, so we have non-coastal glaciers just sort of sitting in
the middle of Antarctica and absorbing enough atmospheric water to
significantly alter the global sea level?  And they were ephemeral?  So
that's X-thousand tons of ice forming and then melting in about six
months?  

Either something's not right here, or Antarctica was a really crappy
place to live 65 million years ago.
