How thick is the ice at the South Pole?

 Q:   Ask a Question about How thick is the ice at the South Pole?       
How thick is the ice at the South Pole? The thickest ice at the South Pole is 4,800 m deep - that's ten times the height of a tall skyscraper. The ice covers a huge area of 14 million sq km, which is bigger than the whole of Europe.

However, the land area under the ice is much smaller because the ice sheet extends out over the sea.

Antarctica contains 90 percent of all the ice on the Earth. Scientists have calculated that should all this ice melt sea levels would rise by 60 m causing world-wide flooding.
