Computional models of the Western Antarctic Ice Sheet face a challenge of length scales: while the ice sheet extends across hundreds of kilometres, its evolution is affected by structures which change over much finer length scales. These are grounding lines, marking the divide bewteen ice seated on rock and ice floating on water, and ice streams, narrow channels of rapidly flowing ice.
