According to the data provided in this video, the combined contributions to SLR from Greenland and Antarctica has risen from 0.27mm/yr in the 1990s to 0.95mm/yr between 2005 and 2010.  Currently Greenland accounts for about 2/3rds of this.

After the exceptional mass loss from Greenland in 2012 and what AbruptSLR has been discussing about recent mass loss from the WAIS, I would imagine that all previous SLR projections for the future are alarmingly on the low side.

I have not watched the full 2 hours of this video, however, am looking forward to a very educational experience.  May require a bag of popcorn and a cold brew (or two).

I not only watched it all, I was amazed by how much of it I could follow. Very accessible presentations!

Thanks for posting, OL.
