Back home, there are three factors to consider:
- Mont Forel, Greenland's tallest peak, can be found in coordinates 66.9333° North and 36.8167° West
- The Arctic Ocean's average depth is 3406 feet, 17,880 feet maximum
- The maximum width of the Atlantic Ocean is 4,000 miles
We're talking about a planet that has a median surface temperature of 58.3 degrees Fahrenheit.
In this alternate scenario, these three factors have changed.
- Greenland has been rearranged to the extent that Mont Forel can now be found at coordinates 90 degrees North and 0 degrees West--the North Geographic Pole.
- The proportion and ratio between the Arctic Ocean's average and maximum depths is the same as back home, but the average has now become 1652 meters, 5420 feet.
- The Atlantic's maximum width has now become 5350 miles, creating a landbridge that connects Asia to North America, erasing the Bering Strait off the map and shrinking the Bering Sea. To that extent, it would be like turning the Russian urban locality of Egvekinot (66.3205 degrees North and 179.1184 degrees West) the next-door neighbor of Teller, Alaska.
Remember, our median surface temperature is currently 58.3 degrees Fahrenheit. Would these three changes listed above lower the median surface temperature, or would it be the same?
