We clarify key aspects of the evaluation, by de Vries and van de Wal (2015), of our expert elicitation paper on the contributions of ice sheet melting to sea level rise due to future global temperature rise scenarios (Bamber and Aspinall 2013), and extend the conversation with further analysis of their proposed approach for combining expert uncertainty judgments.

Keywords: Calibration Variable; Expert Elicitation; Expert Judgment; Global Temperature Rise; Statistical Accuracy.
