Antarctic ice sheet ,as an important part of the Earth system, plays a critical role in the global climate change.The understanding of the Antarctic ice sheet will help in making sense of the global climate system, and support exploring the evolution of the global climate in the past, present and the future. By analysing the significant progress of Antarctic ice sheet research in recent years, on the basis of these major findings, observations, as well as the fact that future changes in the discussions,some recent progress is focused, including mass balance, ice cores,subglacial lakes and water system, numerical model of Antarctic ice sheet. Review of the possible future research directions should also be of concern.
