I am enclosing the decadal means for thermal expansion and the melt components
(supplied by Jonathan).

2099 .312 .191 .099 -.101

The values are given for 1st December on the year in the first column and
where generated using decadal mean temperatures.

The sea-level changes are in units of metres and are relative to 1860.


On a seperate note, Jonathan also suggested you might know the "best" values
of the ice parameters used in current runs of Magicc.

Regards

Jason
