Plan for OCMIP meeting (Jan 24th)

OCMIP members,

The focus of our imminent meeting in San Antonio (Jan 24, i.e., in just 10
days) will be on (1) accomplishments since the May 1999 workshop and (2)
plans for the 3rd year for OCMIP-2.

Below is a preliminary list of what I think should be presented and
discussed. Please send suggestions, by this Monday morning, Jan. 17th.
Also, if you are listed to present something, I need to know how much time
you think you will need.  Keep in mind that we have only half a day.
Presentations must be kept short (15 min max) and focused on the two
points above.  The idea is spend more time discussing than presenting.

1. Recent Accomplishments 
   1.1 Model comparison
   - J.-Cl. Dutay,              Progress on CFCs: analysis, manuscript, plans
   - J. Orr,                    Abiotic runs: submissions, analysis, plans
   - R. Najjar                  Biotic runs: submissions, analysis, plans
   - O. Aumont(*)               CO2 Sequestration runs: 1st comparison, plans 

   1.2 Analysis Package
   - P. Brockmann(*)            GAP (Tecplot tools, Ferret scripts, 
                                Fortran programs)

   1.3 Global Data Sets
   - J. Bullister               CFC-11 and CFC-12

                                 Writing strategy?
