The 2014 trend line is showing the same curve as previous years, which means it stays well above the record years from the 2010-2013 period. The difference with 2013, compared to last month, has shrunk (from 1376 to 1108 km3), but other than that the difference with other years has increased. The difference with record year 2012 at the end of September has gone up from 3152 to 3284 km3, and with 2007 the difference has increased dramatically from 581 to 1516 km3. 2014 is now battling it out with previous rebound years 2008 and 2009.
