observed atmospheric temperature trends. None of the suggested reviewers
have been involved in the recent "focus group" that has discussed
problems with the Douglass et al. IJoC paper.

dynamics, radiosonde and satellite data. Published 2004 Nature paper and
2005 GRL paper dealing with issues related to global and tropical
temperature trends. Email:

3. Gabi Hegerl, University of Edinburgh. Expert on detection and
attribution of externally-forced climate change. Co-Convening Lead
