Dear All,

Thanks for the contributions to sections 3.2, 3.3 and 3.8. Over the weekend,
I merged all three, together with Kevin's 3.1 and my non-existent 3.9. Later today
I will have the references in alphabetical/date order and will add that to the file. I
spend all my spare time this week going through the text, eventually beginning on
the bits of 3.9 I can begin to summarize.
With the sections in order it should be easy to merge in sections 3.4 to 3.7 from
Kevin with his reference file in 2-3 weeks time. I then plan to send the whole thing
to all for a read through around mid-December (15-17 if possible with Kevin) as agreed.
Albert sent me this bit of info. It would be useful, if David and Dave could
summarize for their parts. You sort of did in your emails, but not so concisely.
This will enable simple modification of our CA list.
Contributing Authors to the draft version of 3.8 are:

L. Alexander, H. Allexandersson, M. Beniston, N. Dotzek, C. Frei, J. Grieser, P. Groisman,
K. Kunkel, C.Y. Lam, N. Nicholls, I. Simmonds

More information is expected from:

Japanese / Chris Landsea on Hurricanes Atlantic & East Pacific
Dan Cayan on Drought USA for BOX
Peter Ambenje on Floods Kenya for BOX
Panmao Zhai on extreme event Asia for BOX
Lisa Alexander et al. global indices paper (in prep.)
Regional indices workshops
Nicolai Dotzek / Rudolf Brazdil on SCSWP
When /if the additional information arises can you send me summaries and I'll merge
into the master file for 3.1-3.3 and 3.8-3.9/Appendices. It would be useful to send
reminders to all those in your sections that are late and thanks to those that have
sent material. Say we will likely be in touch again, when responding to comments at
the various draft stages.
As for Figures, send these when available. David has sent some and put placeholders in
from the TAR for some. I plan to put these all at the end, although at the moment those
in 3.2 are embedded. I'll sort that later. Don't forget captions for them !
For these sections I have so far, there are 43 pages in the file. References will be
another 20
at least. On references, Kevin and I agree we have too many. Rather than try to reduce
for the ZOD (or maybe even the FOD) we plan to keep them, as it is likely if we take some
out reviewers will want them back. I won't be bothering to do anything additional to
the references such as getting them into a common format for the ZOD. I will tidy up a
few, but that will be all.
