Hi Matt, Here is a zipped archive containing the Tornetrask raw measurement ring-width data
sent to me by Keith via Tom Melvin on June 4, 2007. It covers the period -38 to 1997. The
archive has six (6) files in it: TornAD_Briffa_raw.txt the raw ring-width measurements in
original Tucson decadal format TornAD_Briffa_raw_col.txt the raw ring-width measurements in
SAS space-delimited column-ASCII format TornAD_Briffa_raw_out.txt the output file that
lists the contents of the data file and a few statistics too TornAD_Cook_rwl.txt the raw
ring-width measurements in original Tucson decadal format TornAD_Cook_rwl_col.txt the raw
ring-width measurements in SAS space-delimited column-ASCII format TornAD_Cook_rwl_out.txt
the output file that lists the contents of the data file and a few statistics too The only
difference between the Briffa and Cook data sets is that I deleted 12 series when I was in
the process of creating the powerpoint presentation I showed you. So "Briffa" has 587
series and "Cook" has 575 series in their respective data files. I don't recall exactly why
I deleted those 12 series, but I think it had something to do with them having highly
anomalous growth patterns relative to the RCS curve estimated from the ensemble. So the
only reason why I send you the Cook version is that it matches exactly what I showed you in
the powerpoint presentation. However, I would use Keith's data set in your analyses. Again,
just to be absolutely clear, these data are to be used only by us and not distributed to
anyone else without explicit permission from Keith. Cheers, Ed
