>At last I have a moment to get to this!
>If I recall correctly, you were going to provide the Luterbacher European
>temperature reconstruction and the European precipitation reconstruction
>(is that the "Pauling" reconstruction)? I think you'd also got hold of
>the Guiot European temperature recon - is that right?
>I think it would be useful to obtain the gridded reconstructions
>themselves (on the 0.5deg grid?), but also the European mean time series
>(for Guiot, was it only the European mean - I can't remember if he
>produced a gridded recon?).
>Separate files for each season (and separate files for gridded and
>area-mean) would be good.
>As for the format, I'm happy with an ASCII format, unless you already have
>them in netCDF and you prefer that.
>I'm not sure about the uncertainty time series - certainly they would be
>useful for the area-mean time series, but I'm not sure if we need *all*
>the RE values (or 95% uncertainty ranges) through time for the gridded
>fields. If you have them in the same format as the gridded data itself,
>then we could include them.
>As for the description, that can be limited to the description of the data
>format and file contents, and we can just use the Luterbacher and Guiot
>papers to provide the scientific description (plus similar for the
>precipitation as soon as its available). The description could be plain
>text, or HTML, or a word/PDF document. However you wish really!
>For transfer, you can send files to this ftp server:
>When logged in, cd to my directory (tosborn).
>You can then use mkdir to make a subdirectory (e.g. deliv6) and cd into that.
>The you can put the various files.
>Does that all sound ok? Please let me know of any difficulties,
>Best wishes and hope you've now recovered from the flu!
