B.Careful with gain/loss of important individual stations over time.
C.Graphics that display the # of river, rawinsonde, surface, etc. stations over time.
Problem: Limiting on the basis of common intervals of data for different budget terms may eliminate a large fraction of existing data
D.Climatology first, individual years later.
What is the minimum time interval for resolution?

e.g. several groups producing ET fields
**All contributors need to provide appropriate documentation of the uncertainties, errors.
