Complete list of data files

layout last edited: 08 Jul 2014

All .dat files are pure ASCII, and can readily be imported into a spreadsheet like EXCEL.
The monthly files have a 10 lines header with important information.
The yearly .zip files should be unzipped to yield the 12 concatenated monthly .dat files

If you use these data, please give proper credit!

.BIG EXCEL file with all data from 1998 to 2004 . Blank cells correspond to missing data. 
This file contains averages, totals and much more. It is BIG STUFF (27 MB in zipped format).
Calculation of sunshine duration with Oliviéri's method added.. See last worksheet of the file for comments!

Starting 2005, the data files are packed into separate yearly files, such as 2005_only.xls; size is ~20MB.
This has become mandatory as even with 1 GB Ram computer memory the BIG Excel files becomes unusable.
A new file meteoLCDstats_1998_yyyy.xls holds all the yearly summaries.

May I ask you again to give proper credit if you use these data! That's a small price to pay for what's free!

meteoLCD: Meteorological Station of the Lycee Classique Diekirch, L-9233 Diekirch, Luxembourg 
	  Head: Francis Massen,

Be aware:
the following all_xxyyzz.dat data files are the absolutely raw data, as given by the datalogger. 
SOME measurement problems (such as impossible negative values due to maintenance work or power failure) will still be there. 

The monthly files (and the yearly zipped files) have been edited by applying slight linear interpolation over 1 or  2 hours at most, and the 
marking by 9999 of missing data. The rows "max" and "min" should be discarded!
See the "ASCII DATA TODAY" link from the "Today's Meteorological Data" page to find the column definitions.
