Dear folks,

Here are the revised Figures 1-3 of our contribution to IJoC.

Changes made:

Figure 1: In panel A, I've added some space to separate the UAH and RSS
trends from the tick marks on the right hand side of the plot, as per
Leo's request.

Figure 2: As Peter suggested, I've converted the Figure from one to two
panels. I agree that this is an improvement. The original Figure was
fairly "busy". Furthermore, the colored symbols (which denote results
for the "between realization" trend tests) bore no relationship to the
"Frequency of occurrence" scale on the y-axis. This is now clear from
panel B.

Figure 3: As Mike suggested, I've removed the legend from the interior
of the Figure (it's now below the Figure), and have added arrows to
indicate the theoretically-expected rejection rates for 5%, 10%, and 20%
tests. As Dian suggested, I've changed the colors and thicknesses of the
lines indicating results for the "paired trends". Visually, attention is
now drawn to the results we think are most reasonable - the results for
the paired trend tests with standard errors adjusted for temporal
autocorrelation effects.

Please let me know if you would like me to make any other changes.

With best regards,
