Yes, their historical account is essentially the same as in my 1995 book, which fortunately they do cite thoroughly — and brought up to date, of course. The idea that the GRS formed from a South Tropical Disturbance was also proposed in my book. What’s new, and very welcome, is that they have done computational simulations that show this to be physically plausible.
