What was done In an effort dedicated to resolving these problems, Dunne et al.
examined what they describe as "the up-to-date evidence of recent
sea-level change in the Chagos Archipelago from tide gauge, satellite
altimeter records, and ocean models."
What was learned In the words of the three researchers, "there isno evidence of any
