Keith - figs look great for now, and hopefully the flurry of emails
just cc'd to you will take care of everything except Oerlemans. To
help here, I've dug up the Chap 4 pdfs. (going to the CLA would not
be quick, nor necessarily any better).

In the Ch04 figs file, go to Fig 4.5.4 on pg 4-72 for caption
material that seems pretty bland.

In the Ch04 Text file, go to first full para on p 4-22 for what chap
4 had on the Oerleman's work. I suspect this is the last time they
thought about it.

You can keep this really short and sweet - main thing is that it's
another independent data set that shows unprecedented recent warming.
A short para should do it.

Are you going to use a table to help with the figure captions?

On the weekend/evenings, I can be reached at home 1-970-728-0780, and
during the week on my cell 520-907-6480. I'm single parenting, so on
the weekends and evenings I might have to call back if 4 yr old Jack
is doing something less than enjoyable to 1 yr old Eli. Julie is in
Germany for IODP sampling. During the week, the boys are in school,
and Julie's Mom arrives in time for next weekend. After the boys go
to bed, I also work.

We're getting there - thanks!

best, peck
