Are the Arctic ice sheets stationary or do they move around?

    They can move. The ice sheets move when their domes, which are thick portions where snow accumulates, spread and gradually become compacted layers of ice. Ice sheets (or continental glaciers) are able to spread across flat ground. This occurs when the thickest ice’s weight pushes the edges of the glacier outward.

      Your answer is appropriate for ice sheets on land; if the questioner refers to the frozen sea ice in the Arctic, that is a different question, and the frozen sea ice in the Arctic does not move significantly as a mass.
