thank you for your clarifying mail - I am glad to hear that Sarah Raper
is on board of the AR4 writing team and will include her in my database.
For your information: I am heading the German IPCC-Coordination Office
(e.g. see www.d-ipcc.de; sorry, in German only), the official German focal
point for IPCC, however, is Dr. Ursula Fuentes from BMU (Environment
Ministry), which has the lead among the federal ministries concerning IPCC.
Greetings, Helmut Kuehr
