Abstract [es]

El Manto de Hielo Antártico, la cubierta glaciaria del Continente Antártico, es la mayor extensión de hielo actual de nuestro planeta y la mayor reserva de agua potable. En este capítulo se describen sus características glaciológicas principales y la de los elementos que la integran de acuerdo a los estudios y compilaciones más recientes. Se ha puesto énfasis en los aspectos dinámicos de cada uno de los componentes y en sus interrelaciones dentro del manto de hielo en su conjunto. Por último, se presenta el paradigma de la inestabilidad del Manto de Hielo Antártico Occidental y se discute la potencial evolución futura a la luz de los últimos hallazgos en la materia.

Abstract [en]

The Antarctic Ice Sheet, the ice cover of the Antarctic Continent, is the largest ice body of our planet and the largest freshwater reservoir. In this chapter its main glaciological properties and those of its components are reviewed according to the most recent studies and compilations. The ice dynamical aspects of its components and their interrelations within the ice sheet are emphasized. Finally, the paradigm of the instability of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet is presented and the potential future evolution is discussed in the light of the most recent findings in the subject.
