"frozen at a secret base in Iceland"

"Well that was bloody brilliant planning, what with all the ice up there melting and all... "

Question for geographers: What's going to happen to Iceland when the ice all melts? Does it just disappear into the waves? Or do we have to start calling it Landland?

Here is an interesting fact: Iceland was named on the opposite principle to the naming of Greenland - Lief and the boys figured that calling it "Iceland" would discourage just anybody from showing up on their shores. And now one of their two main industries is tourism (the other being cod-fishing). Go figure.
