Short summary
A full Stokes subgrid scheme in two dimensions for the grounding line migration problem is presented in the open-source finite-element framework Elmer/ICE. This method can achieve comparable results to previous research using a more than 20 times larger mesh size, which can be used to improve the efficiency in marine ice sheet simulations.
