Is sea level able to rise due to the melting of glaciers and ice caps. Also wouldn't Archimedes principle contradict the obvious answer of YES???

Sea levels would rise due to the melting of land ice, not of ice already in the sea as when melted they have the same volume as they do solid, so only with the addition of land ice melting into the sea would the sea rise. I don't think Archimedes principle has anything to do with sea levels rising in that sense as it talks about objects already in the water... Or I may be way off, I haven't studied any of this in nearly a year and I don't remember what I ate for lunch..
