Abstract: Published maps of of Antarctic bedrock elevation place Pine Island Glacier's grounding line on a submarine ridge, but observations of ice velocity indicate that the ridge is absent. Constructing a map of bedrock elevation that is compatible with the ice velocity leads to an ice sheet model that quite different dynamic behaviour over the coming decades, and present day behaviour that is in better agreement with observations.
