The ECOMS User Data Gateway

The European Climate Observations, Modelling and Services initiative (?ECOMS) coordinates the activities of three ongoing European projects (??EUPORIAS, ?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 (seasonal/decadal forecasts, reanalysis, etc.) with different terms of use (publicly available, available for ECOMS partners, etc.).

As part of the data management activities in these projects, the ?Santander Meteorology Group (UC-CSIC) has established the ECOMS User Data Gateway (ECOMS-UDG) to provide a single access point to collections of impact-relevant variables, gathered from existing state-of-the-art datasets (see the available datasets? and variables?). The ECOMS-UDG is composed of a catalogue of datasets and services provided by a ?THREDDS data server and a suite of tools for user-friendly data exploration, access and post-processing. A fine-grained user authorization system allows different user roles to access data sets with different data policies. Since ??R has been adopted for a number of tasks in these projects (validation, downscaling, etc.), an R package for data exploration and access has been developed (ecomsUDG.Raccess) and additional functionalities will be developed to meet the users' needs.

This wiki page provides an up-to-date description of the ECOMS-UDG, including information on the available datasets and variables, and the documentation of the available tools. The following documents and links are the basic references:
