subject: cruddy chapter immediate need!!
I am committed to, and late , producing a paper for some special issue of Climate Change that Christian Pfister is editing. I promised it a year ago!! Now I wish to do it this week and I wondered if I could include a page from the EC report showing the clusters for European oaks for the period from 1500 onwards (page 58) and just put Hubert's name on the author list. I would prefer to get him/Ena to redo the clustering with more low frequency in - but its presumably out of the question in a week. I also wondered if you could reproduce some of the sort of curves you do from 1500 onwards so I could say something about those - of course I would include you on the author list - but this is not going to be a classic. However, it would be nice to have your perspective in this. Time is a real problem though so if it just means lifting the curves you've already done can we do that please? I tried ringing you but without luck so can you give me a ring. The focus of the paper is the 16th century and the period 1550 - 1600 within that - though of course I'd like to give a longer term context. Let me know as soon as you can whether you/we can cobble something together quick. Thanks
