Arctic sea ice / Re: "Smart" and "Stupid" Questions - Feel Free To Ask

Okay, really stupid question. I keep reading that the earth's rotation is slowing down. If that's true, wouldn't that change how or oceans flow, everything from speed to where they flow to heat exchange? And what change does the slowing have on gravitational pull on the ice?

A couple of stupid questions as I dig into this fascinating subject. First, there was a huge fuss over plastic drinking sta in the us, and in response, many places now outlaw them. They have since been replaced with products that require the manufacturing of more plastic. Isn't that worse, as it's not the final product but the manufacturing that raises greenhouse gases? Second, if the earth's crust is constantly changing at a rate of about 1 inch per year, that means that in the last 40 years, the Atlantic has gained a lot of room. How would we expect the arctic to respond to that?

What's the oldest ice in the arctic recorded? Ive been looking for a trivia question for work, but I can't find any data on that.

Thanks! So if there's a major earthquake, such as the one the off of the coast of Japan, how does that change the oceans currents? Aren't they all connected in some way, so a major change in one would eventually lead to changes in others?

Hello, I am totally new to this arena, as I only became interested in this during the last few months after I learned of the mosaic expedition, but I am deeply intrigued by this all. I have been reading threads here, and have some questions. Please be kind, as I don't know or understand much of the science behind the arctic but really want to learn. First, is it true there was an earthquake in the arctic, and if so, what does the landscape look like now compared to before? How does it change the currents deep in the oceans?

Thank you.
