Dataset

Dataset Item 1 (Table). Meteorological data and soil data collected at Demokeya in the province of Kordofan, central Sudan, for the years 2002–2004. In the table, the format of the Year column is “yyyy”. In the Month column, the number ranges from 1 to 12, and in the Day of Month, from 1 to 31. Julian Day ranges from 1 to 365 (366). The format of the column Time of Day is “hhmm”.
