subject: Invitation to Proxy Uncertainty workshop, June 9-11, 2008,


Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the organizing committee, we invite you to attend a
PAGES/CLIVAR workshop entitled "Reducing and Representing Uncertainties
in High Resolution Proxy Climate Data", to be held at the ICTP in
Trieste, Italy June 9-11, 2008. The workshop prospectus is attached for
your review. The workshop will bring together representatives from each
major high-resolution paleoclimate archive to discuss proxy-specific
sources of error, and strategies for reducing these errors. Your
contributions are essential to the success of the workshop, and we
sincerely hope that you can attend.

Thanks to the ICTP, the Electric Power Research Institute, and PAGES,
funds are currently in place to cover US$1000 of your travel expenses
(roughly US$400 of which will cover your lodging, breakfasts, and
lunches at ICTP). Pending additional workshop funds, requests for
additional funding will be handled on a case-by-case basis, as needed.

Please respond with a tentative yes or no as soon as possible, so that
we can ensure that each proxy group is well-represented.

Thank you, and we hope to see you in Trieste next summer.
