    The continent of Antarctica is basically one giant glacier, made up of smaller glaciers and masses joined together. As a whole, the continent is 90% of the worlds fresh water, “If it were divided up, every person on Earth could have a chunk of ice larger than the Great Pyramid. (Link 1)”

    Within Antarctica, the Lambert Glacier holds the world record for the largest glacier, it “it drains 8 % of the Antarctic ice sheet”, so around 11.25% of the worlds fresh water, if my calculations are correct.
