Dear Keith,


As I do not have the contact details of your co-authors, may I ask that you, as lead
author, request the required data? Again, the data required is below:


Would you therefore please provide me with either a URL or the complete tree

ring measurement data sets in digital form for all data sets

discussed in Briffa et al 2008, including Yamal, Tornetrask, Taymyr,

Bolshoi Avam and Finnish Lapland, together with digital versions of

the individual reconstructions referred to in Briffa et al 2008,

including, without limitation, the reconstructions for each of the

above sites and the composite regional reconstructions referred to

in the article. This information is necessary to "verify the

conclusion of the article".


Our policy states that "As a condition of acceptance authors agree to honour any reasonable
request by other researchers for materials, methods, or data necessary to verify the
conclusion of the article". Therefore, somehow we need to make this data available.


Many thanks,


Claire

I am not at liberty to release the raw tree-ring measurement data

underlying these results as these are the property of the my other co

authors (and used with permission here) and requests for these should

be addressed directly to them. cheers
