  • [24-May-2013] First version of meteoR available: R package for accessing local and remote data (from the SPECS-EUPORIAS data portal).


Different sector-specific impact activities to be undertaken in SPECS and EUPORIAS projects require a reduced number of variables (typically at surface) from different data sources (mainly seasonal forecasts, reanalysis, and observations). The SPECS-EUPORIAS Data Server has been established by the 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 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.

This trac/wiki page provides an up-to-date description of the SPECS-EUPORIAS Data Server, including information of the available datasets and the documentation and code of the R data access package. This page is currently under construction, but both a first tutorial describing the basic functioning and a first version of the R package (a R function) are already available:

Dataset catalog:

Preliminary validation of System4 dataset: PDF file (v1.0)
