Hi Christopher
could you be more specific about which data sets you require ? All the numbers that allow
you to plot the separate lines on 6.10b ? or the data required to lot 6.10 b (which would
be difficult) ?
thanks
Keith

Dear Mr. Briffa and Mr. Osborn,

Following-up to Prof. Overpecks email, Im writing to see if I could get a hold of the
estimates for global temperature variations going as far back as you may have them (what
I have in mind is Figure 6.10 from the IPCC WGI report). Id like to use these figures to
work out a few graphics for the United Nations Human Development Report which is themed
on climate change and human development this year. Getting the estimates on a simple
Excel spreadsheet would be more than sufficient.

I would greatly appreciate your help with gathering these data at your earliest
convenience as were now promptly approaching our production deadline. Please let me know
if you have any questions or concerns.

Many thanks,
Chris

Hi Chris - the folks to coordinate with are:

1) 6.10 - Keith Briffa and Tim Osborn
2) atm concentrations - Fortunat Joos

I'll cc these guys so they know what's up, and you have their emails.

Best, Jonathan

Dear Dr. Overpeck,

I am writing you from the United Nations Development Programme's Human Development
Report Office. This year's global Human Development Report is on climate change and
human development. We are right now finalizing the statistical figures we are presenting
in the Report and I'm working on using data from WG I to present some key points in
climate change science on temperature and GHG atmospheric concentrations. I have been in
touch with Kathryn Averyt and Kevin Trenberth who both pointed me in your direction.

We're working on piecing together a number of graphics based primarily on historical
data as far back as IPCC publishes them. These are for:

(1) Global average temperature (the infamous 'hockey stick' graph), and
(2) Global GHG concentrations. This would be for the six Kyoto gases, but most
especially for carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide.

The graphics in the FAR that most closely match what I have in mind on these two
measures are Figure 6.10 (temperature), and FAQ 2.1 and Figure TS.2 (atmospheric
concentrations).

I would greatly appreciate your urgent help on getting a hold of these data. Please let
me know if you should have any questions regarding this request.

Many thanks,
Chris
