Well , if there is only a massive flow would develop as the water tried to move into the Indian Ocean through Indonesia and the Atlantic to South America and the Arctic - probably ruining streams all over the place . But like all the oceans are likely to go together , places that becomes critical are low coastal plains and tidal areas . The man made structures have their

It makes a big difference , because suffice to like flooding some areas of the world . And it would be only the Pacifc Ocean that would grow to be all oceans. And the water pressure increases too think Which means in this question is whether the level of the sea , and raised both . I Did I help ? Best answer ?

If life on earth that would see much more than you think . When the tide rises during storms , your property is at risk , as it is now too close to the water. It may seem a small thing , but it is a problem of millions of dollars in waterfront property is extremely expensive per square meter .

Most people tend to think of the ocean as a flat surface , but has peaks and valleys , reacts to its own gravity and actually influences the shape of the planet . Besides altering the coasts , flooding and many coastal cities , 3 or 4 feet deep in the Pacific means land has lower albedo ( reflectance ) and absorb more heat from the sun . Also alter water discharge and sediment of many major rivers and several variations of tide . Water also has to come from somewhere , which means we would lose many of our terrestrial glaciers , further decreasing albedo and climate warming .

3 feet equals ten meters to the coast . Virtually the ocean moves in 30 feet .
