Philip,
Making arrangements for the trip. Should get my copying in the archive done
on Jan 26, so pencil in Jan 27.
Harry's gone to Bangor for a few days to help them finish an earlier project that
should have finished end of 2003. He's still doing quite a bit even though another project
is paying him at the moment.
Putting something down for a report is very useful. It does show what is still needed.
We should discuss the error approach a little more for example. Apart from the normals
work he has 2 things left to do. One is to check some outliers which arose re
the ERA-40 work. Some of these have already been found. Second he has to send
you the homogeneity corrections we've put together and then we can discuss these.
Cheers
Phil

Hi Phil.
I'm glad to hear that you're not completely submerged by IPCC work. I'm
free on Jan 27-8 so anytime then would be good. (Check that the archive
will be open though; they were saying 'February' last I heard).
I've started to draft a report on the HadCRUT3 work, not because I
think we are nearly finished, but because it will force me to confront
all the bits that still need to be done. Hence my message to Harry. He's
doing good work, I'm just starting to worry that we are going to run out
of time with some key component missing.
Regards,
Philip
