    10 The 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 [http://naclim.zmaw.de 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 (seasonal/decadal forecasts, reanalysis, etc.).

    12 As part of the data management activities in these projects, the [http://www.meteo.unican.es Santander Meteorology Group (UC-CSIC)] has established the ''ECOMS Data Gateway'' to provide a single access to collections of impact-relevant variables, gathered from existing state-of-the-art datasets.

    1414The ''ECOMS Data Gateway'' is composed by a catalogue of datasets and services provided by a [https://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/thredds/current/tds/TDS.html THREDDS data server] and a suite of tools for user-friendly data exploration, access and post-processing.

    16 Since ​[http://www.r-project.org R] has been adopted for a number of tasks in these projects (validation, downscaling, etc.), a R package for data exploration and access has been developed and forthcoming functionalities will be developed according to the users' needs.
