thanks for your comment. I am in full agreement with your propositions. In my
mail I did possibly not clearly explain that PAGES will publish the written
form of the implementation plan (IP) soon. Everybody is asked to participate
in the discussion of this implementation plan. Therefore, it is important that
Thorsten and Louise help to update the last version of this implementation
plan on the PAGES website.
Focus 1 of the IP deals with the omprovement of the forcings and modelling,
and Focus 2 is centered on regional reconstructions, including modelling
aspects. Therefore, the Foci 1 and 2 work closely together as I discussed with
Bette while I was in the NCAR. Our goal is in fact what you nicely formulated
like "exploring how models simulate the climate variability (and the natire of
the association with forcings) that we reconstruct from the paleodata"
or "issues such as the climate sensitivity of models versus the real
world....", etc. The idea of the regional reconstructions in Focus 2 is in
fact to support such a procedure.
I also agree that we have to show to to a broader community (including
especially the press and our politicians) how important paleoclimatic studies
are. This is also important for our future funding.
Very best regards, Heinz
