    55In order to set a common framework with a precise definition of the variables, the `ecomsUDG.Raccess` package is based on the use of a vocabulary. In essence, the vocabulary is a table containing the standard names of a number of variables commonly used in impact studies and downscaling applications, subject to permanent revision or addition of new standard variables. The naming conventions and the units are based on the standard name [ table] provided in the frame of the SPECS project, although in case of conflict, and in order to maximize the inter-operability of the vocabulary, the nomenclature is also compliant with the [ NetCDF Climate and Forecast Metadata Convention].
     7Note that not all the variables listed in the vocabulary are necessarily available at the ECOMS-UDG, although all variables available must be included in the dictionary, allowing always the retrieval of homogenized data by default. The vocabulary contains the following variable information:
    89* `identifier`: this is the standard name that the `loadSeasonalForecast` function will recognize automatically.
    1011* `units`: units in which the standard variable is returned.
    12 The vocabulary has been included as a built-in dataset of the `ecomsUDG.Raccess` package in order to provide the user with a reference of the standard variables.
