This review presents a perspective on recent trends in glacial geomorphological research, and in particular the increasing engagement with investigating glaciation over larger and longer timescales facilitated by advances in remote sensing and numerical modelling. The AA. focus on the example of West Antarctica. They discuss 2 examples of the ways in which numerical models offer significant potential for testing ‘glacial geomorphological’ hypotheses of continental glacial landscape evolution and smaller-scale landform development. They close by identifying some future challenges in glacial geomorphology
