  1. a We eliminated the value at 35.6oN due to its large error bar
  2. b We excluded an outlier at 44.5oN
  3. c Values with large error bars at 13.5° and 14.5oN as well as the topographic effect at 10.7oN were not included
  4. d A value at 11.3oN was not adopted due to its large estimated error
