  3. Ice Sheets The ice that covers Antarctica is actually a part of an Ice Sheet. Some parts of the Ice Sheet are over 2 miles thick . So how does a huge piece of ice move? The base of the Ice Sheet moves over land. It actually moves very slowly grinding against mountains, valleys, and carrying rocks down hill as it goes Photo Courtesy of David Blaine, USAP

  4. Ice Shelf A thick floating platform of ice flows down to the coastline and onto the ocean surface. Photo courtesy of www.earth.rice.edu
