We are close to the deadline for input to the strawman document
outlining the main objectives of the Paleo IP.
I enclose the minutes from the London meeting to remind you about the process.
I have been in Nice for the EGU meeting and met a number of people
interested and active in the project, including some of you. I also
had a discussion lunch with key people for WP 4, which was helpful.
For your information: we have reached an agreement with Rainer Zahn
who co-ordinated the ICON IP bid, focussing on the controls on the
Thermohaline Ocean Circulation. He has agreed to be a part of our
initiative and will provide input from ICON into WP 3. That means
there is no competing proposals as far as I know.
When providing your input, please use the following template for each WP:
1. What are the overriding unsolved scientific questions?
2. What are the main selling points (relevance)?
3. What are the key science objectives and deliverables?
4. What sub WP needs to be defined?
5. Who are the must have partners.
As soon as I receive input I will distribute it to the list fropm the
London meeting to obtain feedback. I will not wait until I have input
from all WP, but send it out WP by WP.
BUT: Time is urgent, and we need your input by the first week of May.
The original deadline was May 1.
Meanwhile, the name: I have not received many proposals for better
acronyms, and no fedback on the last try:
CORONA-Co-ordinated Research On the NAtural climate variability of a
warm earth. or
EuroCORONA: European Co-ordinated Research On the NAtural climate
variability of a warm earth.
or IP-CORONA: Improved Predictability from Co-ordinated Research On
the NAtural climate variability of a warm earth.
Another try: IMPRINT- IMproved climate PRedicatibIlity from Research
on Natural climaTe variability of warm periods.
Please vote yes or no or give me other suggestions. We need to have
the name ready soon....
Last news. The Carbo Oceans proposal will be funded, which means we
have the opportunity to build synergies in terms of management and
also in terms of the biogeochemistry aspects of our proposal.
