Subject: Reviews into the Climatic Research Unit's E-mails at the University of East Anglia
Pursuant to the reviews of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, oral evidence was heard from Lord Oxburgh, on 8 September 2010, and from Sir Muir Russell, Vice Chancellor Edward Acton, and Pro Vice Chancellor Trevor Davies, on 27 October 2010. Each hearing considered the fraud allegation against CRU Professor Phil Jones. The allegation was made by me. The following describes some issues that pertain to the allegation, and proposes a means of resolution.
The 1990 study
In 1990, the following study was published in the leading scientific journal Nature (note that Jones is the first author).
Jones P.D., Groisman P.Y., Coughlan M., Plummer N., Wang W.-C., Karl T.R.,
“Assessment of urbanization effects in time series of surface air temperature over land”, Nature, 347: 169–172 (1990).
