Greetings,

We appear to be it. The original TOR suggested 80keuro might be available, and it seems we can reasonably bid for a fair chunk (up to all if it's justifiable) of that money. This suggests we could include some personnel costs as well as travel. I've already talked this over with Martin: would Gabi or Tim be interested, either in the form of salary support via your institutions or as direct sub-contractors (I'm easy either way)? I assume, from Keith's e-mail, that Keith only wants travel support.

Dear Myles,

I have approached the KNMI in the Netherlands but they don't have time at
the moment. I also talked to a couple of paleoclimate people (also in the
NL) but they are not really interested because of the short and recent
period that is covered by the hockeystick. So, my request to you is to
submit a proposal, together with the colleagues you've mentioned. I'll send
you the proposal format and cost tables shortly. The proposal will be on
the agenda for the next meeting of the Steering Committee, on 15 March. Do
you think you can manage to send me your proposal on Thursday 10 March at
the latest?
If you need more information: please let me know. We have a 'Reader' for
this type of projects, but unfortunately it is in Dutch. I'll read through
it again and provide a translation of the most important issues.

best regards,
BertJan.

Dear Bertjan,

After some very quick and informal consultations, I can confirm that
myself, Martin Juckes (Rutherford Appleton Laboratory), Gabriele Hegerl
(Duke University), Keith Briffa (University of East Anglia) and Tim Osborn
(UEA) would be interested in the possibility of tendering for this
activity. Our areas of expertise are statistical analysis (Allen), optimal
estimation (Juckes), climate change detection (Hegerl), interpretation of
tree-ring data (Briffa) and pattern-based climate reconstructions (Osborn).


What is the procedure now? Are you envisaging competing bids from teams of
experts, or would you like us to join forces with other experts you have
approached?

Dear Dr. Allen,

I am looking for the best experts to undertake the whole assessment. In
general, we try to invite a team of experts to undertake this kind of
assessments. How many people? That depends also on the subject and the
available 'pool' of experts. There are already a couple of experts too
closely involved, as a party in the public debate, so I've asked the KNMI
for suggestions.
If you are interested to submit a proposal and if you have suggestions who
to invite to join in: you are welcome!

Regards,
BertJan Heij

This is indeed an interesting problem. Can you clarify, please, whether
you are seeking volunteers to participate in such an evaluation exercise,
or seeking proposals to undertake the whole six-month study?

Dear Dr. Allen,

I've got your name from our Met Office staff (KNMI, the Netherlands). They
suggested that you might be interested in carrying out an assessment on
reconstruction of temperatures of the past 1000 years (the 'hockeystick').
Attached you find the context (the subprogramme WAB of the Netherlands
Research Programme on Climate Change) and the Terms of Reference for the
project . Please let me know whether you are interested to submit a project
proposal, based on the TOR.

Sincerely,
BertJan Heij
