Dear All,
I'm being forced by the FOI Act to make some aspects of the
data used by CRU
to develop CRUTEM3. I've agreed to provide the information
contained in the second file.
In order to explain this, I've written the word document. Once
you've all had a look at this,
Mike can put it on our web site when I incorporate your changes.
Can you all look at the word document and suggest changes? You'll need to
look at the other file to see what I'm having to explain. The main
issue is that
many of the country names are missing or not now correct and some of the
station elevations are missing or zero (for some sites in the
fUSSR). These are
not important for the gridding - which is what I'm trying to explain.

Harry - can you recall if any of these locations (the lat/longs)
were changed within
Brohan et al. (2006). Maybe you'll have some info about any location changes.
I'm unsure as to whether these were incorporated into the file I used to make
the 4167 lines.

I've told the FOI person here in the library that we'll get this
up soon. So
hopefully we can get this up by the end of next week.

You will all notice that the years associated with each station
are missing.
These were not included in the offer I made, so they aren't getting
these pieces
of information. The years are only useful in reading the
temperature file, as they
do give the first and last years, but some stations often have
sections of missing
data.

Cheers
Phil
