Hi, Phil,
I've been on vacation in Oregon the past 9 days so I didn't pay too
much attention to the controversy. Yes, the other reviews are back.
Tom has, or so he says, responded to all but the one on UHI that I
agreed to do just before I left. We are, however, reconsidering our
approach to the buoy correction as Dick wants to use a different
approach since his further assessment has indicated the current one
isn't as robust as Tom thought.
Warm regards,
Tom
