Keith

It's not worth the effort updating them. The programs use the climate
data in binary format. Tom would be better off starting from scratch. I
can provide code anyway and he can hack. But I really don't have time to
get involved helping.

Other point here is that CRU gridded precip doesn't show any clear
signal. I've done this analysis. The volcanic effect is essentially
radiative with little effect on circulation. So this would be a pretty
frustrating project. Might be worth looking at winter warming dimension
as there could be a high lat precip effect related to the circulation
change.

I'd suggest a re-think, otherwise this is going to involve a lot of
effort for no result. But let me know and I'll pass the code to Tom.

Mick
