Eugene - quite timely. Keith and Tim are doing the final revision
tomorrow, and we've actually been debating if the vonStorch issue was
handled just right.

thx, peck

>Hello Jonathan, Keith, and Eystein:
>I don't yet have any word from Steve Schneider concerning the
>Wahl-Ammann article on the MBH/MM issues...
>...HOWEVER, here is something that slipped under my radar screen, about
>which I should have made you aware previously. I've attached the
>ACCEPTED version of the Wahl-Ritson-Ammann comment article on the
>vonStorch et al. 2004 Science paper. This the article that criticizes
>MBH for very large low-frequency amplitude losses. The final acceptance
>from Science just came TODAY, and is copied below.
>In this comment article (specifically requested to be expanded to 1000

>verification performance of the MBH method as implemented in VS04 show
>really poor LF fidelity--which cannot happen if the MBH method is
>implemented according to its original form. We note this, which is
>explained by a significant omission on the part of VS04 in implementing
>the MBH methodology (a detrending step that was only disclosed later
>last year in a conference proceedings paper). We also comment on
>physical and statistical reasons why detrending is not appropriate in
>this context. We conclude that the large amplitude losses VS04 claims
>are simply not correct.
>I am imagining that this contextualization of the VS04 critique would
