    An ice shelf is a thick floating platform of ice that forms where a glacier or ice sheet flows down to a coastline and onto the ocean surface. Ice shelves are found in Antarctica, Greenland and Canada only. The thickness of ice shelves range from 100 to 1000 meters. The largest ice shelf in the world is the Ross Ice Shelf and the Filchner Ronne Ice Shelf in Antarctica.
