Thompson # 1: Inconsistent Dunde Versions

The Dunde (Himalayas) ice core is a staple of multiproxy studies (MBH98, Crowley and Lowery [2000], Yang et al [2002] used in Jones and Mann [2003], Jones and Mann [2004]). It was one of 4 series that contributed the only hockey-stick-ness to the results – see here . Although the core was taken over 17 years ago, it has not been archived at WDCP. In 2004, after I objected to Climatic Change, Thompson archived a decadally averaged version, which is inconsistent with the "grey" version used in MBH98 (see below) and both are inconsistent with the 50-year smoothed version used in Yang et al. [2002]. Thompson has been funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation. This matter should be resolved by prompt archiving of original data, together with a reconciliation of the different versions. (This applies to Guliya and Dasuopu as well.)

    Is there an original publication? You might get data out of that…or at least a less-smoothed curve.
