Sounds great on all counts.
Kevin's comments are all good ones,

Scott,
Seems OK. we will send both figures and the text for one last look through today.
Trying now to incorporate Kevin's comments.
Cheers

Phil and others,
Here is a revised figure. What do you think?

Scott (and Mike if he's still there),
The three of us have been through the text, Fig 1 and decided
what to put in Fig 2.
Tim is doing Fig 2 (9 long series - we'll send when we have it). I'm
modifying the text
slightly - adding in refs that are missing (mostly with Fig 2) and
generally tidying up.
Keith is working on the final sentence of the penultimate para. We
all agree with this,
but it could be misinterpreted - so trying to avoid this.
WRT Fig 1.
There are quite a few changes we think would improve things and
make it more consistent,
all to the labelling.
1. Add et al to Bauer and Gerber (twice).
2. Years only in for Mann et al., so this is the only one where refs
would be ambiguous.
3. So, Briffa et al 2000 becomes Briffa and Osborn 1999
4. Briffa et al, 2001 becomes Briffa et al .
5 Remove Long instrumental - the orange line from the plot and key.
It isn't explained in the
caption, nor in the text.
6. As the grey line may not be seen under the grey shading, we think
that all lines should
be as thin as the grey one. Some are thicker than others - can all be
the same thinness.
7. Back to key, change Optimal borehole (Mann et al, 2003) to Mann et
al. 2003 (Optimal
borehole) for consistency with the others.
8 . Most important is the SCALING. Needs to be clear which are scaled
(to annual) and which
aren't. Text in caption is ambiguous. So can you tell us which is
scaled (to annual) and
which aren't. If they are scaled then key should say - scaled
1856-1980 as with Jones et al .
Does this apply to Briffa and Osborn and to Briffa et al (the grey
and orange lines).
9. Whilst on scaling are all scaled or regressed? Scaling we think
of as giving the same
mean and variance. Regression does this also but which has been used.
10. Finally, Figure would look good with a thin black line along the
zero line from 0 to 2000.
Call me or Tim if anything you don't follow. Try Mike as well. I
sent him an email earlier
today and he'd already put his reply message up for the next 4-5
weeks.
Cheers

Mike and Phil,
Attached is figure 1. The format is Adobe Illustrator with an
embedded PDF. You can view it in Acrobat. Let me know if you have
questions.
