loadeR: An R package for climate data access

Bedia, J., Iturbide, M., Herrera, S. and Gutiérrez, J.M.

loadeR is an R package for climate data access building on NetCDF Java. It allows loading local or remote data (from OPeNDAP servers) and is fully integrated with the User Data Gateway (UDG). This package has been conceived to work in the framework of both seasonal forecasting and climate change studies. Thus, it considers ensemble members as a basic dimension of the two main data structures (grid and station).

This package is part of the climate4R bundle, formed by loadeR, transformeR, downscaleR and visualizeR.

This wiki provides an up-to-date description of the package functionalities, with some worked examples:
