Abstract

The aim of this review is to acknowledge the interrelationship between topography and ice sheets in Antarctica that must have necessarily taken place during the last 34 million years. Several attempts have been made using numerical modelling. In this review, the subglacial topography of Antarctica is inspected with reference to both contemporary ice-flow processes and ice-sheet history. Examples of how landscape evolution have been estimated are discussed, which provides a means by which the continental scale link between topography and ice-sheet development can be investigated in future
