[1] Increase in ice‐shelf melting is generally presumed to have triggered recent coastal ice‐sheet thinning. Using a full‐Stokes finite element model which includes a proper description of the grounding line dynamics, we investigate the impact of melting below ice shelves. We argue that the influence of ice‐shelf melting on the ice‐sheet dynamics induces a complex response, and the first naive view that melting inevitably leads to loss of grounded ice is erroneous. We demonstrate that melting… CONTINUE READING
