Dear Tom and Keith,

I'm happy to act as a reviewer and hope that the NERC proposal fares
well in the review process.

Keith, get better! This is a terrible time of year to be ill.

Best wishes,

Dear Lisa,

I'm glad that you enjoyed our paper. Apparently the feeling is not
universal (we've had fairly tough criticism already)! Still, at
least our paper is simple enough that most people should be able to
evaluate which criticisms are justified and which are not, without
needing a PhD in statistics.

Best regards

to: Phil Jones <>

Dear Phil

Attached is an invitation for you to attend and
give a presentation at an NCCR Summer School to
be held in the Italian part of Switzerland in
September 2008.

Huw Davies and I recognize that the likelihood of
you being free and able to attend is smaller than
100%, but if there is a chance you should not
miss to spend a few days in a very attractive
part of the world!

We would much hope to have you as a speaker and
would appreciate to receive your reply as soon as
feasible. If you should have any questions,
please don't hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,

subject: Re: AR4 IPCC/blocking issue of 3.5 subsection

I would try and get this person involved, unless you really want to write the text
I would suspect she has only recently finished her PhD at ETH-Z, so it might be better if
you write the text using her and any other papers. My reason for suggesting Huw Davies
was that his text would be more usable. He's obviously passed the request on.
This was the only paper I could find in a google search with blocking and NH in, so it is
likely that there isn't much to review. If there isn't much then we should also say that.
blocking section will end up short, but this will leave space for other parts of your
to expand upon where much work has been done. There might be updated blocking indices
on web sites, if you know of good ones - even if papers haven't been written recently
(e.g. the Tibaldi/Molteni index).
This person (cornelia) will not be a reviewer of the draft. Those people will be of the
whole chapter
and we've already given the names to WGI.

Kevin, Phil:
I've just received a message from Prof. Davies whom I asked a recommendation for a CA to
cover the blocking issue (3.5.4) in the changes in atmospheric circulation subsection
(following Phil's suggestion in a message sent on 8th of October). The recommended
person is Cornelia Schwierz ( e-mail, ETH, Zuerich, Switzerland),
the first author of the GRL paper on blocking which Phil sent us, in the previously
mentioned message.
The time is pressing us and perhaps is a little bit late to start again the recruiting
procedure, I don't know. Another solution is to write myself the blocking paragraph and
ask for informal comments. I have already looked for and found some blocking articles
which can be useful. I wait your decision in this matter. Thanks.
PS In my opinion, Cornelia Schwierz may be a reviewer of the draft -- if the list is
still open to add names.

Kevin, Roxana,
Apologies for a slightly delayed response. I've not heard of Fabio D'andrea either.
A search on google using blocking and NH yields the attached paper. Not heard of
the first two but have head of Huw Davies. Don't think Huw will do anything for us,
but he should be able to suggest some names for us - both in Switzerland and
I would suggest you contact him Roxana, and see what he says. His email
should be on the ETH web site. It is likely to be or something like
Another person who came up was Stefano Tibaldi, who I've met many times He's not
doing much research now, but his group in Bologna are. It would be worth contacting
Carlo Cacciamani ( or anyone in the arpa group in Bologna.

Christophe says he will contribute but not on blocking. He has suggested someone, and
Roxana has some names also, but I don't know any of these people. Roxana, I wonder if
you can look at this person's papers and see whether either you can summarize them?
Any ideas on blocking in NH?

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for your answer and your advices. I will provide you and Roxana my
contributions according to what you had written.

As to Blocking, I would suggest to contact Fabio D'andrea
([4] that wrote few papers about it.



PS: say hello to the flatirons for me... I miss them.
