This article would benefit from a mention of the Martian ice-caps by an expert, which sadly I am not. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.30.201.64 (talk) 23:36, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

(William M. Connolley 10:05, 12 Mar 2005 (UTC)) I switched this from a redirect to ice sheet because (at least in the context I'm used to, global warming) an ice cap is different to an ice sheet, in that its much smaller (and therefore responds much more quickly).

What is the latitude of each ice cap?

There are many of them. William M. Connolley 09:37, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

There are many errors on this article, as well as poor grammar/spelling. The author talks about the 'ice caps' at the North and South Poles. in Antarctica, there is an ice sheet, and a few small ice caps (which are insignificant to the global warming debate). There are no polar ice caps at the North Pole, simply a glacier, formed from sea ice. I will correct this soon. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tomhalpin (talkcontribs) 13:59, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

"a glacier, formed from sea ice"? Mighty unusual glacier. 206.208.105.129 (talk) 20:48, 28 January 2011 (UTC)
