Peter,
Probably worth doing. Start something off at you end.
This issue should die down soon.
I'm coming down for June 1. David was going to
check availabilities for discussions of HadCRUT4 (and HadSST3).
We could decide to make the station data available that
will go into CRUTEM4 (and hence HadCRUT4).
My issue about not doing it is when will it stop. They will
then want programs. As you know there are two key files
(the 61-90 normals and the SD file). The station headers within
the station data aren't that well documented.
If MOHC does release the station data, I'll let MOHC deal with
all the flak. You don't know what some of the header info is, for example.
There are codes that cause some series to only get used from certain dates.
I can barely remember some of it.
There will also be questions as to why some series don't come to the present date
- the US ones for example.
Cheers
Phil

Phil,
not a bother. Suggest that we arrange a legally watertight IPR on paper
as this will, sadly, just repeat ad infinitum. This should cover all our
collaborative efforts and not just HadCRUT. Its only a matter of
time ...
I know people in our legal team and we can kick it off wen this all
calms down if that would be desirable to you.
