The data should have the following properties:
  • There is only one header line containing the header names.
  • YEAR, DoY and at least one of the meteorological variables has to be provided.
  • The header names should be exactly as shown in the template (but not case-sensitive). There may be additional columns.
  • Missing values are indicated as -9999.
  • All years provided (not necessarily consecutive) will be used for the regression.
  • Minimum requirement of data is one full year of 365 or 366 days.
