“A new reanalysis by two NASA scientists of the three standard ice-monitoring techniques slashes the estimated loss from East Antarctica, challenging the large, headline-grabbing losses reported lately for the continent as a whole. Although not the final word, the new study shows that researchers still have a lot to learn about the vast East Antarctic Ice Sheet. Understanding the role of East Antarctica is one key to figuring out what the ice sheets, and thus sea level, will be doing by century’s end.” Published in the journal “Science”.

This finding is totally consistent with the findings by NASA using satellite data and Watson’s analysis around Australia that sea level rise is decelerating. Further evidence that CSIRO prediction of rising water inundating valuable land around our coast line is false and now known to be false

The authors note that it is also difficult to disentangle the variability of weather systems and sea ice patterns from the ongoing impacts of human emissions of greenhouse gases.

In other words, they dont know

According to those images, there is a marked differnce...However; whether the decline is due to humans or natural cyclic changes in the environment is the question. I tend to believe it's former.
