thanks for your message. I am sure we can work with these files as
soon as we know how the grid is organized. Is it line by line from the
North to the South, starting at the dateline? Or something different?
Yes indeed, it would be the best to work with *your* 61-90 baseline
for this. Does the baseline also contain cloudiness? If not, then I
intend to generate that from our own files, and we will make the
assumption that, on the level of monthly means, this does not change
as much as to significantly affect the sensitivity of vegetation to
the other forcings.
As for a minor point, please remember to use my pik-address
whenever possible. The other two (csi and t-online) are both used for
sending mail while I am on the road (csi) or at home (t-online), and
particularly t-online has the drawback that I can ONLY access it from
home (presently) and not from the lab. Unfortunately, I cannot
convince my mail sending software to always pretend the mail comes
Yes, I will come to the ACACIA meeting, at least until the second
day in the afternoon - after that I have to juggle two other meetings
in Holland and Germany. With some luck, I should be able to present
some results there.
PS: I saw your correspondence with Kinne and am interested to follow
up - but not today.
