Peck and Eystein
I have to break off now for the christmas period
This is unavoidable. I am sending what I have now
even though I am not at all happy with it.
It is obviously only part way there. Getting the data
to produce Figures and work out how to design them
is going to be time very consuming
and I will rely entirely on Tim here to do them
- and the regional input
stuff if wanted will need input from a number of people
that I have not been able to contact (see later)
The borehole discussion (contributed to by Henry Pollack) will need
batting around and Henry (and Mike , who contributed
a section on regional forced changes) will need to be kept
on board. There will be loads to say on the simulated
temperature histories and Tim will help here also
- but much is unpublished or
even unanalysed (hence Simon and Eduardo will need
to contribute eventually). The glacier bit at the end is what
Olga sent and I have not had time to work through it.
You two need to give some direction as to how
much you wish to have explicitly looking at the mass of
NAO?AO reconstructions , ditto ENSO or PDO and all the
simulations of these - but at this stage not sure where in overall
plan all this going. Do we really want a discussion on MWP
and LIA per se ? The regional descriptions , including Southern Hemisphere
could be infinite length and I suppose we should only discuss longest or
pre assimilated information - but will need specific input here from colleagues
if we are to do these regional (including precipitation ) sections .
I know Julie and Ed , and presumably Eystein , will be the best people to ask.
I am attaching the current text and placeholder ideas for Figures .
Not feasible to work more on these until know wider priorities re space.
Have had bad experience with ENDNOTE - and Tom Melvin here will forward
the biblio file later.
I wanted to do more , but that is all I can manage til after Xmas
Here is wishing you (and your loved ones) all the best
