Hi Chris,

Good to talk to you a moment ago. As we discussed, the final budgets
must be clearly aligned to meet our objectives, with the added pragmatic
issue of ensuring critical mass of resources to each institution to help
them deliver. Having said that, just to give you an idea, the costs for
delivering on the new coral data for 4 sites as described in the WP
would be in the region of 395k (FEC). This is based on:

- 60 days fieldwork and associated costs (boat hire; travel; shipping;
consumables): 125k
- 10,000 geochemical analyses (del18O and Sr/Ca): 160k
- support staff salary costs (for workshop and fieldwork): 36k
- Co-I salary (15% in Y1 then 5% for each of Y2-4): 27k
- Misc (equipment upgrade; consumables; XRD, SEM): 10k
- conferences, meetings, publication: 6k
- Estates and Indirect: ~31k

TOTAL: 395k

Note this does not include any post-doc time. I envisage that a post
doc would be better spent working on model-data comparison and
statistical analyses rather than on data generation that can be done in
our labs, i.e., shared, e.g., with Gabi.
