Dear Tim and/or Keith,

Tom Crowley asked me for the annual-mean reconstruction we did using
the MXD data and the RegEM method, which I personally don't have a
problem giving him. He also asked me for the MXD data. Here's his

However, the MXD data aren't mine to give out. Here's a copy of my
e-mail to Tom:


Attached is a text file of our reconstructed NH annual mean using the
Briffa/Osborn/Schweingruber agebanded MXD data.

Briffa, K.R., Osborn, T.J., Schweingruber, F.H., Harris, I.C., Jones,
P.D., Shiyatov, S.G., and Vaganov, E.A., 2001, Low-frequency
temperature variations from a northern tree ring density network:
Journal of Geophysical Research-Atmospheres, v. 106, p. 2929-2941.

As soon as I hear from Tim Osborn or Keith Briffa regarding the
actual MXD data I will put the data on ftp for you (it's really their
data so I want to run it by them first, just so they know).

I will be glad to send him the data, but I wanted you to know before
I did so. Please let me know if you have any objections.
