It might have really because the earth breathes and mountains can get higher.
Although in the short space of time it took since last measurement it might not have gained a metre.
More likely is the original explanation that their instruments got it wrong first time round.

Two people have just been found dead on Ben Nevis.
They have been lost a few weeks.

If they have this new technology then be prepared for further adjustments in the height calculations of all the mountains around the world :thumbup:
