Hi Henry (and Keith) - thanks for the quick
effort! Regarding your comments, here's some
feedback - it's good Keith beat me too it.

1. For Fig. 6.9b, there is a new version that
resulted in lots of discussion at our last
meeting. Keith can elaborate when he has time
(we're pushing him real hard now for the SOD
text), but we agree the caption has to be clear.

2. I'm worried about your discussion of southern
hemisphere records, and trust Keith will get it
right. Too bad your paper isn't in press too - it
would be nice to include.

3. Hope you can help Keith with uncertainty
prose. We are over length and hence we can't have
more figures (e.g., with confidence intervals
shown for all data). Please help him work it into
the SOD text.

4. It is unclear if we'll have time for review of
the whole chapter, but I'm still hoping Keith
will send you all of Section 6.6 to look at. That
assumes he has it done today or very soon at
least. The more people that can look at text the
better, but we also have to get the draft done -
it can then be reviewed, and we will make sure
CAs get to review in a more timely fashion this
time.

Thanks again, Peck

>>>>>Dear friends,

>>>>>the following documents.
>>>>>1. A new template for the FOD which is restructured so that the
>>>>>decisions on structure we made in Christchurch have been taken into
>>>>>account. We also send you the word version of the FOD which is the
>>>>>final version used for the review, in case you do not have this.
>>>>>This is the version for which the comments refer to.
>>>>>In the rewriting we would ask you to rewrite into the SOD template
>>>>>document, thus:
>>>>>1. Find the relevant comment or section to be rewritten in the FOD.
>>>>>2. Then the corresponding section in the SOD document, and rewrrite
>>>>>the text there. References should also be inserted into the SOD
>>>>>document.
>>>>>You have to work in parallel with both documents, but we do not see
>>>>>any way around this in order to arrive at a SOD without too many
>>>>>problems of technical sort.
>>>>>
>>>>>Cheers, and best luck.
