[Phys-L] Iceberg melting and sea level rise


John C. stated a that "But iceberg melting does not contribute to sea level rise.". Here is a link to a paper which challenges this idea:

A short excerpt from the abstract:

":..the sea level will rise. The analysis shows the wrong conventional answer [such as the statement above] is due to the wrong assumption that water from a melted iceberg has the same density as seawater."

The argument seems convincing and the demonstration does work. Any counter-arguments?
