I did a little geoscience nerding with some folks.

The actual air pressure at sea level would remain the same. The column of air above a point would still have the same mass, it would just be spread over a different height. (And pressure is really the force of the mass over the area).

But the air pressure for any given point on land that doesn't get covered by the sea, the air pressure at the land surface will go up proportionally to the sea level rise.

Ot that is what the geology nerds decided.

I think that atmo would increase in millibars as the sea rises? After all, air can be compressed, but not water... just saying? I read a book this last year, altho darn if I can remember the title or author, about what would happen if sea levels actually covered the entire Earth...

Hmmm. If sea level rises, does atmospheric pressure get all wonky, too? Hmm. Never wondered about that!

Nope, we keep the ship's atmo at 16lbs per sq inch, just like what sea level used to be on Urth! You know, before they let the major MultiNationals destroy the environment and all...

I guess we should start trying out some healthy party recipes to make sure we have something guests would like! Do you have to adjust cooking time in space like you have to do in higher altitudes on Earth?

As for the Dragon not burning anything last month, did you forget the carpet in the Main Bridge Access Hallway? She and Gorn were playing a "practice" round of Rodent Rollerball when an "errant" (or so they keep telling me?) fireball somehow and oh so mysteriously besmirched the deck?
But maybe giving them a task during the party is a good idea! I think that we could get Gorn out of his usual... ummm... ermmm... nekkid outfit and into a cute butler's attire and serve drinks?

last time we didn't let the Dragon help with s'mores he decided to make s'mores in the hydroponics bay. I think we shoudl let him be in charge of s'mores this year. He hasn't burned a bay in at least a month.

With the holidays coming up, some of us might be disembarking for leave to attend planetside parties.

Here's a funny article to help us navigate the situation:

http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/geekend
/muggle-party-survival-tips-and-tricks
/10130

To be fair, what tips should we give visitors for our festivities?

If a wookie prepares an appetizer can we assume he/she wore hairnets on they're hands? If not will drinking a gargle blaster help clear the resulting hairballs?

Can we trust Gorn and The Dragon with task of preparing s'mores?
