Data Harmonization

The different nature of the different climate products, models and variables, and the idiosyncratic naming and storage conventions often applied by the various modelling centres, makes necessary a previous harmonization across datasets in order to implement a truly user-friendly toolbox for data access.

loadeR.ECOMS achieves this by defining a common vocabulary to all climate datasets. The particular variables of each dataset are translated -and transformed if necessary- into the common vocabulary by means of a dictionary.

These features and more details regarding harmonization have a dedicated section in the loadeR's wiki.
