Tim, thanks a bunch. This all sounds very good. We're finalizing a
pseudoproxy paper for JGR based on the various tests w/ the CSM
simulation I showed in Wengen, and will send you a guys a copy once its
finalized. A natural followup would be a similar analysis applying to
the ECHO-G simulation, and we would enjoy collaborating w/ you and Keith
on this. We were also thinking of doing some "mixed signal" analyses,
where the pseudoproxies represent a combinatiiion of temp and precip
(including limiting cases of pure temp and pure precip). This might be a
natural way to incorporate the ECHO-G results. We'll let you know if we
have any trouble w/ format, etc.

thanks again,

mike
