Thanks. That has made it very clear.
I meant to add one other thing. I enjoyed being on the committee and
learnt a lot from the experience.

Thanks for your e-mail and sign-off on the report. In response to your
question, only the "clean" version will be released to the sponsor and
the public. As you correctly guessed, we'll keep the memo and the
tracked changes version on file for awhile to refer back to in case
there are any questions about how we responded to review. They are
considered strictly internal NRC documents and I have not heard of any
occasions when these documents are shared publicly.
Like other committee correspondence and past report drafts, we ask that
you do not share those documents with others outside the committee.
This helps preserve the committee's ability to think freely and
independently on the topic.

Away yesterday and tomorrow, so have gone though this today. I am
to sign off on this. I looked at the sections (Chs 5 and 3 and the ES)
was involved with.
The major upfront substantive comments are also fine. I only had time
scan the
other chapters in the tracked version.
The responses to the A-F reviewers were interesting to read. Some
nicely worded responses
to some of the comments from F.
Can I check one thing? Will the CCSP team just get the file
"TempTrends_4-25-05 clean.doc" ? What happens to the file "TempTrends
Review Memo.doc" ?
Is it just like a normal 'responses to reviewers' file, so is kept on
file by the editor of the journal
(in this case NRC) for a while? It is the justification that we did a
good job, so is it made
publicly available as well?
