Located within a supra-Mediterranean climate, the av- erage annual temperature is within the range 8 to 12 degees C. Their data was collected from January 2000 to December 2003 and it was built using two sources. Your problem will involve 7 variables from that dataset. • tt X - An ID number for each measurement • month- month of the year: ”jan” to ”dec” • temp- temperature in Celsius degrees: 2.2 to 33.30- temperature in Celsius degrees: 2....
