Experiment Demonstrating Melting Ice Conceptual diagram illustrating the effects of climate change on polar ice. There are two kinds of polar ice - ice that floats on the sea (sea ice) or ice that sits on land (land ice). The experiment demonstrates that sea ice does not impact sea-level rise when it melts, but land ice does add to sea-level rise when it melts into the ocean.
