Thanks Peck,

Sounds like it may not work, then, to schedule this workshop in the Fall.
Perhaps there is room to get this in the PAGES/CLIVAR pipeline for the
following Spring? I think the workshop in question has a unique niche in its
combination of empirical and model approaches to paleoreconstruciton, and it
would be a great opportunity to get some of the other European groups (e.g.
GKSS) involved in the international efforts, so I'm hoping we can all work
to get a workshop like this in the pipeline.

Keith and Dominique: what do you think? Or what about the possibility of
somehow combining the two as Peck suggests (Hans has also suggested this,
and I would be happy to help in any way I can if you think something along
these lines is possible).

Will look forward to hearing back w/ thoughts, and ideas.
