ClimateDT output variable list

Following is the list of variables provided in the output file for each location. Each listed variable is provided for the whole time period (1920-2098). Please note that the first four columns in the output file contains ID, Latitude, Longitude and Elevation (in this order) of the input file. The reference year is reported in the 5-th column. All the reported variables are marked as tested (T) or experimental (E) according to their current state of development.
