The data format of the rows of the experiment dataset:

STATION,STATION_NAME,ELEVATION,LATITUDE,LONGITUDE,DATE,PRCP,SNWD,SNOW,TMAX,TMIN,WESD

Where:

  • WESD – Water equivalent of snow on the ground (tenths of mm)
  • TMAX – Maximum temperature (tenths of degrees C)
  • SNWD – Snow depth (mm)
  • SNOW – Snowfall (mm)
  • PRCP – Precipitation (tenths of mm)
  • TMIN – Minimum temperature (tenths of degrees C)

Example from the CSV:

Remark: -9999 marks no measurement data is available, rows with all -9999 measurement data are not in the CSV
