Ice has long shaped our planet. Many of the landscape features we see today are the result of its actions over thousands or millions of years. This has long been known; but in the Anthropocene we understand that, through our production of greenhouse gases, humans also shape iceónot the ice in trays in our refrigerators, but the glaciers that produce our rivers, the sea ice that impacts our ocean currents and the enormous ice shelves that hold the vast majority of our planetís freshwater. While humans have always encountered and interacted with ice, understanding this relationship has taken on a new urgency in the twenty-first century.
