    1 The [http://meteo.unican.es/en/dataservices data services] provided by the [http://www.meteo.unican.es Santander MetGroup] build on a THREDDS Data Server (TDS) implementing a user authentication and data authorization protocol via a THREDDS Administration Panel ([http://www.meteo.unican.es/tap TAP]). Thus, registration in the TAP is required to access the different datasets. The authentication scheme is defined in terms of groups (e.g. VALUE, CORDEX, ECOMS, etc.), each of them providing access to a number of datasets (e.g. ERA-Interim for downscaling, System4, WIFEDI, etc.). All public datasets are included under the PUBLIC group.

    3 Users can request membership  in the different groups, which are all moderated with the exception of the PUBLIC group (automatically approved under request). The process to be followed to register and enroll in groups is described below.

     7Users can ​register by filling the required information (including the user, email and password) in http://meteo.unican.es/tap/register. Alternatively, we are working on a new option to register using the the user's OpenID (e.g. from ESGF); more information will be available soon.

     9Dataset authorization is organized in groups, which correspond to different supported projects (EUPORIAS, SPECS and NACLIM) and international initiatives (VALUE, CORDEX-ESD), including also a PUBLIC group for all public datasets. Therefore participants in any of these projects/initiatives can request membership in the corresponding groups, which are all moderated with the exception of the PUBLIC group (automatically approved under request). Membership to any of these groups grants access to restricted datasets (e.g. ECMWF's ERA-Interim reanalysis for downscaling or System4 seasonal/annual forecasts). In all cases, dataset access is conditioned to the acceptance of the particular usage terms and conditions.
     10
     11For instance, three public datasets are available in the PUBLIC group: WFDEI (WATCH with  ERA-Interim) gridded observations, NCEP-NCAR reanalysis and CFSv2 seasonal hindcast. VALUE and CORDEX-ESD groups provide access to a subset of predictors from ERA-Interim reanalysis commonly used for statistical downscaling. Finally, the three groups related to the  ECOMS projects (EUPORIAS, SPECS, NACLIM) provide access to different seasonal forecasting products.
