    11 Different sector-specific impact activities to be undertaken in [http://www.specs-fp7.eu SPECS] and [http://www.euporias.eu EUPORIAS] projects require a reduced number of variables (typically at surface) from different data sources (mainly seasonal forecasts, reanalysis, and observations). The [http://www.meteo.unican.es/tds5/catalogs/system4/System4Datasets.html SPECS-EUPORIAS Data Server] has been established by the [http://www.meteo.unican.es Santander Meteorology Group (UC-CSIC)] as part of the data management activities in these projects to provide a unique access for these impact-relevant variables, gathered from existing datasets. The data portal is based on a THREDDS data server providing metadata and data access using OPeNDAP and other remote data access protocols. Moreover, a user-friendly [http://www.r-project.org R] package has also been developed for exploring and remotely accessing subsets of data, thus reducing the burden of data access in these activities. This package will be also a key component for other tasks of the projects based on R, including the validation and downscaling packages to be developed within SPECS and sector-specific calibration and modeling tools to be developed in EUPORIAS.
     11The European climate observations, modelling and services initiative (ECOMS) coordinates the activities of three concurrently running projects ([http://www.euporias.eu EUPORIAS], [http://www.specs-fp7.eu SPECS] and NACLIM). Different sector-specific impact activities to be undertaken in these projects require a reduced number of variables (typically at surface, but also at pressure levels for downscaling purposes) from different data sources (mainly seasonal/decadal forecasts, reanalysis, and observations). The [http://www.meteo.unican.es/tds5/catalogs/system4/System4Datasets.html ECOMS useRportal] has been established by the [http://www.meteo.unican.es Santander Meteorology Group (UC-CSIC)] as part of the data management activities in these projects to provide a unique access for these impact-relevant variables, gathered from existing datasets.
