Antarctica Questions help?

  • 0 votes
  1. Why might your heart be pumping faster and your breathing become shorter if you were standing on the highest point of East Antarctica's Ice sheet?
  2. Why would your heartbeat return to normal if you flew from there to the Ross Ice Shelf? 
  3. Three differences between the ice sheets over west Antarctica and east Antarctica.
  4. If Antarctica's area is about 14,000,000 square kilometers and the average ice sheet thickness is 2,450 meters, can you calculate the volume of the ice in Antarctica?
  5. What do you think would happen to the land buried under the ice if the ice sheets melted? Why?

Please help. thnx
