Having MAD leading WP4 should be fine. Not sure how much I can be
involved since I not only moved to MPI but also to a new (well, not
really new .. I worked on this a while back) field of work (land-surface
modeling). I'll still be involved in the detection/attribution topic,
through a contract I have with Pacific Northwest Labs and also through a
project at MPI funded by the German government. I'm also in a palaeo
working group at MPI, so I'd think that I can be involved in SOAP

BTW, because of the possible problems this might cause in Brussels
regarding intermixing MAD and MPI, please take out my name from Part C
in the list of institutions.

Part B

1) In the introduction you still make mention of partners 10,11,12 etc
... I are probably aware of this but I wanted to make sure we don't have
left-overs from the INTEGRATE proposal

2) The same is true for the description of WP4 in the introduction where
the old workpackage numbers are referred to

3) Regarding deliverables and milestones wrt WP2 and WP4 I'd think that
we can just take those from INTEGRATE (D2, D3, D7, D9, D10, D12, D13,
D16). Although, on second thinking, we're probably going to have more
deliverables accounting for the regional work by the new partners 5-7,
and probably GKSS ... but I'd leave that to those partners, I think MAD
should be written up for those tasks that were MPI and GKSS combined in
INTEGRATE, esp. since MAD is going to be leading WP4. Here are the
person-months I suggest for MAD:

WP2: 11 mo
WP4: 24 mo
WP5: 1 mo
