The Greenland ice sheet averages almost 4000 feet thick.

If we were to assume the ice sheet has been accumulating at this rate since its beginning, it would take less than 1000 years for it to form and the recent-creation model mht seem to be vindicated. In making our calculations, we did not take into account the compaction of the snow into ice as it is wehted down by the snow above.

Neither did we consider the thinning of ice layers as the tremendous weht above forces the ice at lower levels to squeeze out horizontally.When these factors are taken into account, the average annual thickness of ice at Camp Century located near the northern tip of Greenland is believed to vary from about fourteen inches near the surface to less than two inches near the bottom (Hammer, et al., 1978).

More importantly, we did not consider the average precipitation rate and actual depths of ice for different locations on the Greenland ice sheet.
