  • Provides a probabilistic upper range of long-term persistent natural GMSL/LMSL variability (P=0.99), which in turn, determines the minimum/maximum anthropogenic contribution to sea level rise since 1900
  • Concludes that it is virtually certain (P=0.99) that at least 45% of the observed increase in GMSL is of anthropogenic origin
