Nigel and Melvin,
As fellow Tyndall people at the meeting Martin refers to, is there anything you can/should
add to Martin's analysis about the way forward? Before talking with Martin I would like
other views. My various discussions with David Warrilow would not necessarily have led me
to the same conclusion. I will be seeing David next week and will ask.

The view of the fast track team that emerged when we met on 3rd July was that
DEFRA would view a bid from Tyndall for DEFRA funding actually quite
negatively since Tyndall is receiving public funds. What we propose to do is
to bid to DEFRA as the fast track group, but also make a research proposal to
Tyndall in Round 2 for funding that makes links to Tyndall's developing
integrated assessment model. This should strenthen both Tyndall's and
DEFRA's products.
We have suggested to David Warrilow that this work should not be considered
until the current phase is complete (c. April 2002).

I have 2 visitors on the 3 July here at UEA so may not be able to come.
I think it is important that if DEFRA tender for further work that Tyndall
Centre provides the umbrella under which we bid - we formally have Arnell,
Cannell, Parry and informally LSHTM. I am also exploring ways of bringing
Nicholls and Martens into the Centre framework.
DEFRA are looking for ways of working more closely with Tyndall and this is
one route. I have a feeling however that DEFRA may want something rather
rough and ready compared to HJS's long-term view of tighter model
integration. Still, it may be a stepping stone.
I would like to talk about this before the 3rd.
My concept document from last year is attached.
