Hi Peck, Eystein and Keith,
Attached in Borehole SOD.doc is a 'rewrite' of the borehole stuff. You
will recognize the 'rewrite', as it still addresses everything in
the FOD draft sent to me, with much the same language. It is, however,
an improvement in
structure, and has a more balanced discussion. Keith, if you want more
insight into why I
have presented the material this way, I'll be happy to elaborate.
The rewrite occupies lines 32-57 of page 6-30 SOD and lines 1-12 of page 6-31.
Also attached is the full SOD template with the 'rewrite' and
references inserted. It is not clear from your instructions that you
wanted this to be done, but now you have it if you want it.
Also attached are my replies to the reviewers of the FOD.
I am sending everything today (Sunday), so everyone will get it as
early as possible.
Some additional comments in areas outside the narrowly defined
In Figure 6.9b, I recommend removing the instrumental record prior to
1860, because it
apparently represents only four European stations. The figure is
captioned to represent
the entire northern hemisphere.
In section 6.6.2 Southern Hemisphere Temperature Variability page 6-32,
lines 56-57: The
two geothermal reconstructions shown, for southern Africa and
Australia, do NOT indicate
unusually warm conditions prevailing in the 20th century. Both
reconstructions miss the
rapid warming in the last two decades of the 20th century because many
of the boreholes
were logged prior to that excursion. The two reconstructions do match
well the pre-1980
SAT trends. I discuss this in a paper now in review by J. Quaternary
Sci., titled "Five
centuries of climate change in Australia: the view from underground."
hemisphere is NOT discussed in Pollack and Smerdon (2004), which you
have cited there.
If you will find it helpful, I can scan the entire chapter and provide
perhaps that could wait until you have passed the immediate deadline in
front of you.
