    187187* `dataset`: A character string indicating the full URL path to the OPeNDAP dataset. Currently, the accepted values correspond to the System4 [  available datasets] at the SPECS-EUPORIAS THREDDS Data Server.
    188 * `var`: Variable code (see Details).
     188* `var`: Variable code. This is the name of the variable either as coded in the dataset (as provided by the data inventory) or according to the `identifier` code in the dictionary if `standard.vars = FALSE` or `TRUE` respectively.
    189189* `standard.vars`: Logical. Default to `TRUE`. In this case, a dictionary must be available.
    190190* `dictionary`: Character string with the full path to the dictionary. This is used only when `standard.vars = TRUE`. In this case, by default (`dictionary = NULL`), the dictionary is automatically searched in the same directory as the dataset, as a file with the same name than the dataset and extension ''.dic''.
    208208The output returned by the function consists of a list with the following elements providing the necessary information for data representation and analysis:
    210 * `VarName`: Character string indicating the variable long name, as defined in the vocabulary (see Table above)
     210* `VarName`: A character string indicating which is the variable returned. Same as value provided for argument `var`.
     211* `isStandard`: Logical value indicating whether the variable returned is standard or not. Same as value provided for argument `standard.vars`
    211212* `MemberData`: This is a list of length ''n'', where ''n'' = number of members of the ensemble selected by the `member` argument. Each element of the dataset is a 2-D matrix of ''i'' rows `x` ''j'' columns, of ''i'' forecast times and ''j'' grid-points
    212213* `LatLonCoords`: A 2-D matrix of ''j'' rows (where ''j'' = number of grid points selected) and two columns corresponding to the latitude and longitude coordinates respectively.
