Based on the latest GFZ release 06 of monthly gravity fields from GRACE satellite mission, area-averaged barystatic sea-level is found to rise by 2.02 mm/a during the period April 2002 until August 2016 in the open ocean with a 1000 km coastal buffer zone when low degree coefficients are properly augmented with information from satellite laser ranging. Alternative spherical harmonics solutions from CSR, JPL and TU Graz reveal rates between 1.94 and 2.08 mm/a, thereby demonstrating that systematic differences among the centers are much reduced in the latest release. The results from the direct integration in the open ocean can be aligned to associated solutions of the sea-level equation when fractional leakage derived from two differently filtered global gravity fields is explicitly considered, leading to a global mean sea-level rise of 1.72 mm/a. This result implies that estimates obtained from a 1000 km coastal buffer zone are biased 0.3 mm/a high due the systematic omission of regions with below-average barystatic sea-level rise in regions close to substantial coastal mass losses induced by the reduced gravitational attraction of the remaining continental ice and water masses.
