Carbon stores and fluxes in present-day ice sheets (2019), and the predicted impact on carbon dioxide (where data exists).
Estimated carbon fluxes are measured in Tg C a−1 (megatonnes of carbon per year) and estimated sizes of carbon stores are measured in Pg C (thousands of megatonnes of carbon). DOC = dissolved organic carbon, POC = particulate organic carbon.

The Antarctic ice sheet is the largest single mass of ice on Earth.

- Ice sheet

Alpine glaciers form in mountainous areas, whereas vast ice sheets form over land in polar regions.

It is abundant on Earth's surface – particularly in the polar regions and above the snow line – and, as a common form of precipitation and deposition, plays a key role in Earth's water cycle and climate.

Sufficiently thin ice sheets allow light to pass through while protecting the underside from short-term weather extremes such as wind chill.

Mean sea level (MSL, often shortened to sea level) is an average surface level of one or more among Earth's coastal bodies of water from which heights such as elevation may be measured.

Some land movements occur because of isostatic adjustment of the mantle to the melting of ice sheets at the end of the last ice age.
