Eugene and Dave
sorry not to get back to you before (but this was my really heavy teaching period - now
running down). In fact generally what you intend is fine though perhaps with a bit more
focus on philosophy rather than mechanics. Let me try to explain -
First let me say that the I agree with John about not using the Appendix route. So your
plan as outlined as 3 sections is ok. The brief illusion to specific proxies and
cross-referencing is the way to go but "good" examples of various types is very acceptable.
Let me say though that we do not need too much "standard" stuff on trees that can be found
elsewhere - just appropriate focus on issues and signposts to literature - but rather a
discussion of concepts that show potential and current difficulties of high-resolution data
(including specifically intra-annual as well as inter-annual) as distinct from other types
of (less-resolved) proxies. Major stress on the ubiquitous use of empirical interpretation
of climate controls of proxies (and inferred assumption of the stability of
uniformitarianism underlying these regression approaches) would is important (as is lack of
true process understanding to date in many studies - or at least demonstrable evidence in
consistency of such with regression-based results in existing studies). Also we need
discussion of how current methods emphasise climate variability, potentially loosing or
attenuating evidence of (multi-century) climate change. Yes you could discuss how the
precision enables hypothesis testing about very -short time scale forcings and responses
and the definition of precisely delineated patterns of reconstructed change in space also
- because of the facility to average accurately , while less resolved data , calibrated
with spatial regression - possibly over state the latter evidence or at least produce
reconstructions with such wide confidence bands that they effectively tell us nothing
useful about medium time scales of change , say centuries. However, this begs the question
of the Hockey-Stick debate (the Von Storch , Burger stuff) and the limited basis (in terms
of proxies and coverage) that it provides (because of the need to respect resolution and
climate sensitivity issues). Don't be afraid to attack this issue head on.
I like your section 3 by the sound of it . In practise, it will be hard to judge the
appropriate level of detail needed for specific proxy types - so think in concepts with
examples rather than the rigid proxy type approach (such as was used in our recent Holocene
review) - and if in doubt , do less now and leave it to the authors to juggle the balance
between chapters later. Your focus though on the dendro will , however , be in this chapter
only.
Basically , what you are doing is fine , but think what you believe limits our
understanding of current proxies and what we need to do and remember that the future
ideals are what you are trying to identify and , so facilitate. I know this sounds a lot
like what we tried to do in that review paper - and perhaps it is - but it gives you the
chance to put your stamp on the debate. Good luck and thanks for taking this on

OK, I will await guidance from you on settling this question. Inclusion of the material
on dendro methods in the main text would take us back to the original 3 main sections,
just with section 2 on Methods focused largely on dendro -- with the various other
high-resolution methods briefly mentioned and then referenced to the other relevant
chapters on them for more detail. This structure is fine with me.
By the way, please include David Frank, my co-author, on this correspondence as it
develops. Thanks very much.

Dear Eugene
OK, but I would prefer the `tree-ring proxy' material to be integrated into the chapter
(rather than an add-on appendix).
Perhaps this could be achieved by describing section 2 as a case study of the most
important proxy.
I am very disappointed th\at Keith Briffa has failed to send me any editorial comments
on any chapter - I know he expressed particular interest in your chapter (perhaps this
will prompt some comments).

Subject: Re: Editors' comments on chapter outlines (Handbook of Environmental change)
Hello Dr. Matthews:
I have looked over the outline of the chapter I am co-authoring with David Frank (c.
15), and note that the one editor's comment suggests a significant abbreviating of the
description of proxy methods that is set forth in section 2 of the outline.
I think this is a valuable suggestion, and based on it, I want to suggest that David and
I implement it with one important change. The change would be this: we would mention
the various methods in an introduction and reference the other relevant chapters on them
for more detail, with the exception of dendrochronological data, which we would describe
in some detail in a "Tree-Ring Proxy Methods" section that would act as a kind of
appendix to the chapter.
Please let us know what you think of this alteration. The outline as set forth in
sections 1 and 3 would otherwise remain unchanged, except that the former "section 3"
would now constitute the actual section 2 -- with what had been the second section
before becoming the ending methods section described above.

Dear All
Now find attached one more set of Editors' comments (Anne de Vernal) added to the
Chapter Outlines file.
Note also that we now have a confirmed author for Chapter 42 (Andy Morse).
So all we have to do now is write the chapters!
Enjoy!!

Dear Authors
The attachment `Chapter outlines' now contains some comments from four of the editors
of the Handbook, which will hopefully be of some use to you as you write your chapters.
Please note that it is now only a month to the deadline for writing the first complete
draft of your chapters!
I am still awaiting the comments of three of my editors - but please do not delay.
Also attached are the full list of `Chapters and authors', which includes authors'
contact details. Please contact authors of other chapters if you need to discuss
unresolved questions about coverage and overlap.
(I am still happy to discuss these aspects too.)
I look forward to receiving your chapters by the end of March according to the timetable
included in the third attachment - `Notes for Contributors'.
With thanks to Mike Walker and Patrick Nunn whose chapters have already arrived!
Best wishes and good luck with the writing!!

Subject: CHAPTER OUTLINES (Handbook of Environmental change)
Dear Editors and Contributors
1) The attached `CHAPTER OUTLINES' contains at least the headings and sub-headings
proposed by authors for their chapters.
Editors should send me their comments/suggestion by February 14th please so that I can
send out a co-ordinated response to authors.
Strategic comments are required rather than attention to detail at this stage.
Authors should use these outlines to consider strategically their chapter contents in
light of the other chapters.
I still need a couple of outlines from a few authors (you know who you are!).
2) The attached `CHAPTERS AND AUTHORS' has been updated: I am still working on authors
for the two chapters outstanding, namely Chapter 6 (modelling approaches) and Chapter 42
(human health).
All please note some changes to chapter numbers resulting from an added and merged
chapters.
3) The attached `NOTES FOR CONTRIBUTORS' is unchanged but please note we are trying to
keep to the schedule, which involves first drafts of chapters being compled by end of
March.
Belated New Year greetings to you all!
John
