subject: RE: Collaboration
Hi Tim (With Keith added to the CC list). One thing we could think about is
a consortium bid -- there is a lot of 19th century data to be digitised,
worked up and used in model intercomparision work as well as paleo
intercomparision. I'm working on a consortium bid for next June in another
area but perhaps we could start working our ideas up for such a thing for
Dec 2008 or June 2009. (June 2009 feels more sensible as I should have a
better idea of how various projects are going by then...).
You could invite me to visit UEA to give you a seminar as well.....

Dear Simon and Gabi,
I've not been able to reply till now as we're out at Ed Cook's for
I've now had a quick glance through the draft proposal and it certainly
sounds very interesting. And given that you've both (especially Simon) been
very supportive to our projects in the past, then of course I'd be happy to
help you out with some collaboration.
As you'd probably expect, however, we (Keith & I) have related plans to work
in similar directions and plan future proposals in this area. This won't
stop me being a collaborator on your proposal, but it would be nice to get
something back -- e.g., use of the simulated data that you will generate at
an appropriate time (for collaborative work/papers with you both, of
Anyway, I'll be in on Monday and I'll sign the letter then that Phil has
written. Do you need anything more specific from me about the work Thomas
has done with HadCM3?
