Dear Chapter 6 Lead Authors:
We're looking forward to seeing you all in
Beijing, and having a productive meeting. As far
as we know, everyone is coming except Jean-Claude
(for health reason), Dominique (also health
reasons) and David (prevented from traveling by
NASA). We have quite a bit to accomplish at this
meeting, and thus we expect that all attending
will do some homework before they arrive. This
a) please read all the comments, and for those
relevant to your sections (or others) please note
how you intend to deal with them. Of course, we
won't talk about little edits, but we want to
make sure that the group can discuss anything
more serious. For each section, we plan to ask
each responsible person to GIVE A SHORT
PRESENTATION on what must be done. We hope that
all LA's will have input for each section. PLEASE
SEE ATTACHED FILE FOR ASSIGNMENTS, and NOTE THAT
WE HAD TO MAKE NEW ASSIGNMENTS IN ORDER TO COVER
FOR THOSE NOT ABLE TO ATTEND.
NB: There will be a projector in our Chapter
discussion room, so bring Powerpoint
presentations as you feel.
b) please reread the other chapter(s) for which
you are responsible (SEE ATTACHED LIST FOR
ASSIGNMENTS), as well as the comments you
prepared earlier. For anything significant (e.g.,
overlap or achieving cross-IPCC consistency), YOU
SHOULD BE PREPARED TO LEAD DISCUSSION for your
c) think extra hard about the fact that our
chapter is significantly too long and that it
must be shortened. What text and figures can we
cut? Please note that our criteria includes that
the material discussed must be relevant to
policy, new since TAR, and not just a review of
d) make sure you bring your calendars - we will
discuss and agree on a schedule of deadlines.
Unlike our experience with the ZOD, we will have
to meet more deadlines. The First Order Draft
(FOD) must be perfect! This will include nice
final figures, and a complete bibliography.
e) we will discuss section 6.2.2 (with Valerie
and us in the lead), and how we will ensure this
important section, and its more detailed
expansion in the appendix, will be covered. We
propose that we and a small number of
contributing authors to do the job. Please come
with names of individuals who will be potentially
expert in this area (e.g., with describing the
nature of proxies), AND who will promise to work
hard to meet deadlines.
Please feel free to circulate any special ideas
or requests to the group before the weekend.
See you in Beijing!
