Short summary
This study highlights the counterintuitive result that continental ice sheets can also induce a warming, in particular in the Arctic region. The warming is explained by an increased northward heat transport, resulting from interactions between the atmospheric circulation and ice sheet topography. There is thus an important feedback between ice sheets and temperature, which can help to explain the differences in ice distribution between the Last Glacial Maximum and earlier glacial periods.
