I am revising a manuscript which is exploring a new way of calculating a particular variable and was asked by a reviewer to calculate the cross-correlation between the two variables used in this calculation method to further investigate the validity of my new method.

I understand in principle what a CCF is but I am bit stumped as to what my CCFs are telling me as it relates to what the reviewer has suggested. I have never used CCFs before so maybe it's more obvious than I think.

If anyone reading this can help me out, I'd be very grateful. Since this may involve me sending you some files, perhaps it would be best if you contacted me via email or PM initially.

Thanks!!
