Dear Chris,

sorry for the delay. Attached is the data file containing all values
used to construct panels (a) and (b) of figure 6.10 in IPCC WG1.

Note that most of the values shown in this figure were smoothed (as
described in the caption) prior to constructing the figure, but the
data in the attached file are the raw data prior to smoothing. If
you would prefer to have the smoothed data, then please let me know.

Best regards

Tim
