    11The '''​ECOMS UDG''' provides access to a reduced  number of variables for the available [wiki:../Datasets datasets]. The following list of variables has been identified (and is periodically updated) according to the user's needs, receiving feedback from EUPORIAS WP22 (climate information indices, CIIs), WP23 (impact models), WP21 (calibration and downscaling) and SPECS WP61 (pilot applications) and WP52 (calibration and downscaling). See  the section on the [wiki:../../EndUserNeeds assessment of user's needs] for more details.

    3 Note that the short names below are ''standard'' codes which may not correspond to the naming conventions of the different datasets (boldface indicates standard variables according to the [http://cf-pcmdi.llnl.gov/documents/cf-standard-names/standard-name-table/16/cf-standard-name-table.html/ NetCDF Climate and Forecast Metadata Convention] and to the naming convention within SPECS). These short names have been used for homogenization purposes to build the [wiki:RPackage/Homogeneization vocabulary] of the [wiki:RPackage R package for data access].
     3Note that the '''short names''' below are internal codes which may not correspond to the naming conventions of the different datasets (boldface indicates standard variables according to the [http://cf-pcmdi.llnl.gov/documents/cf-standard-names/standard-name-table/16/cf-standard-name-table.html/ NetCDF Climate and Forecast Metadata Convention] and to the naming convention within SPECS). These short names have been used for homogenization purposes to build the [wiki:RPackage/Homogeneization vocabulary] of the [wiki:RPackage R package for data access]. Note that, '''data homogenization and aggregation is only provided through the [wiki:RPackage R data access package].'''

    6 '''6h''' (6-hourly instantaneous data). '''12h''' (12-hourly instantaneous data). '''24h''' (24-hourly instantaneous data). '''DM''' (daily mean value). '''DX''' (daily maximum value). '''DN''' (daily minimum value).  '''DA''' (daily accumulated data). '''DAr''' (accumulated since the initialization time –`runtime`). '''fx''' (static field)
     5In order to specify the particular '''temporal frequency/aggregation''' available for the variables in the different datasets, the following codes are used in the table below: '''6h''' (6-hourly instantaneous data). '''12h''' (12-hourly instantaneous data). '''24h''' (24-hourly instantaneous data). '''DM''' (daily mean value). '''DX''' (daily maximum value). '''DN''' (daily minimum value).  '''DA''' (daily accumulated data). '''DAr''' (accumulated since the initialization time –`runtime`). '''fx''' (static field)

    8 The variables available and ready to use through the ECOMS UDG are indicated using boldface codes. '''e''' indicates that variable exists in the original dataset; '''P''' indicates that the variable exists in the original dataset and work is in progress to incorporate it to the UDG; blanks indicate lack of data.
     7The variables available and ready to use through the ECOMS UDG are indicated using boldface codes. `e` indicates that variable exists in the original dataset, but is not currently available in ECOMS-UDG; `P` indicates that the variable exists in the original dataset and work is in progress to incorporate it to the ECOMS-UDG; `blanks` indicate that the variables do not exist in the original dataset. Codes ended by `(*)` indicate variables which do NOT exist in the corresponding dataset, but are derived/approximated from other available variables through the [wiki:RPackage R  data access package].  More information on the particular approximations used are given in the [http://meteo.unican.es/trac/wiki/EcomsUdg/EndUserNeeds/ListOfVariables variables-datasets mapping].

    5249'''Data Homogeneization:''' The different nature of the datasets, and the idiosyncratic naming and storage conventions often applied by the modelling centres, makes necessary an homogeneization across datasets in order to implement a truly user-friendly toolbox for data access.  To this aim, the [wiki:RPackage R package for data access] has been developed. Data homogeneization is achieved through the creation of a common vocabulary. The particular variables of each dataset are then translated -and transformed if necessary- into the common vocabulary by means of a ''dictionary''. Both features -vocabulary and dictionary- are described [wiki:RPackage/Homogeneization here].
