Sample data for Century (Grid)

Data format is:

Rain Year_start Jan_value Feb_value Mar_value Apr_value ··· Dec_value
T.Max Year_start Jan_value Feb_value Mar_value Apr_value ··· Dec_value
T.Min Year_start Jan_value Feb_value Mar_value Apr_value ··· Dec_value
···
Rain Year_end Jan_value Feb_value Mar_value Apr_value ··· Dec_value
T.Max Year_end Jan_value Feb_value Mar_value Apr_value ··· Dec_value
T.Min Year_end Jan_value Feb_value Mar_value Apr_value ··· Dec_value
Where:

  • the variables are: rainfall and maximum and minimum temperatures;
  • temperature data are the means for the given month;
  • the temperature value for the current month is an average based on the available data
  • the rainfall value for the current month is the accumulated rainfall to date ie. it is a partial accumulation, not the monthly total;
  • the value -99.99 indicates data are not available; and
  • rainfall data are the totals for the given month, expressed in centimetres.
