    3434= The THREDDS Data Server = #s.thredds
    35 The ''SPECS-EUPORIAS Data Portal'' is based on a password-protected `THREDDS data server` providing metadata and data access to a set of georeferenced atmospheric variables using OPeNDAP and other remote data access protocols. The variables names, units and additional metadata follow the [http://cf-pcmdi.llnl.gov/documents/cf-conventions/1.4/cf-conventions.html CF convention]. The variables are spatial grids based on multidimensional arrays of indexed values, following Unidata's ''_Coordinate convention''[[FootNote([http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf-java/reference/CoordinateAttributes.html)]][[FootNote(http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf-java/tutorial/GridDatatype.html)]].

    3737Typically the data portal will include information at a daily resolution, but monthly-aggregated values could be also provided in some cases due to data limitations (in particular, ''Mètèo-France'' and ''Met Office'' have agreeed to provide monthly mean hindcasts for their use by the ''SPECS'' and ''EUPORIAS'' partners). In general, the data available will be typical surface variables (e.g. precipitation and near-surface temperature), although several variables (e.g. geopotential and temperature) on pressure levels will also be  stored for the statistical downscaling activities.
