I think it is an excellent idea to invite all the contributors to the
review process and thank them for their contribution they have made so
far. However, the suggested plan is very difficult as it bypass the
official review process and the Review Editors. This has the potential
to cause a lot of trouble with some that do not like IPCC as we do. We
need to be very careful on procedural grounds. I suggest that you check
with Susan on this point, but to me it seems mandatory that comments are
sent through the official web page.

It might be preferable if the CA get a mail that points out their
important role so far in the process and pointing them to the IPCC
reviewer's page. As an extra service, one could think of attaching the
pdf (or the word document) of our chapter and the exceel review sheet,
but making it very clear that the comments have to be send to IPCC and
not to chap 6.

Here the list of Contributing Authors from my side:

Katsumi Matsumoto <>
helped with glacial CO2

Raimund Muscheler <>
helped with solar

Eric Monnin
Renato Spahni
helped with the ice core data synchronisation

EMICS last millennium modellers:
Gian-Kasper Plattner <>
Anders Leverman
Eva Bauer

There are also people that have provided some data or other 'minor'
things during the process. I believe that it would be very useful to
contact these, although they will not be listed as contributing authors.
In particular one should mention that they have contributed to the
development of the SOD and previous drafts and that the chapter 6 team
wants to thank them.

Have provided their published sulfate data:

Hubertus Fischer <>
Mathias Bigler
Emilian Castellano
Eric Wolf
Roberto Udisti
Margrit Schwikowski
Dan Murphy

Have provided published GHG data:

provided published solar forcing data
judith Lean

provided N-isotope temperature and sediment data for abrupt event figure:
Markus Leuenberger
Trond Dokken

Provided some help with abrupt event figure
Thomas Blunier

5) what about LA's reviewing our own chapter? Since we can't expert

This sounds good.
