Dear colleagues,

Which are the most accepted, compiled CO2- and temperature-curves for 
the whole Phanerozoic?

There are several CO2-curves, such as GEOCARB, COPSE, Rothman, Royer. 
However, we need them for an exhibition and therefore it would be fine 
to be able to show only one curve. But which one? I thought of  GEOCARB 
III ... ?

For the temperature there is this compilation from Jan Veizer's oxygen 
isotope data, but I think that it cannot be directly translated into 
... or can this be done?

Thank you for your opinion and many greetings,
