Make working with gridded climate data in R a little easier.

Purpose

Extract point-specific climate data from some commonly used gridded climate data sets. For CRU temperature and precipitation, downscaling to 30 arc seconds using Worldclim data can be performed, following the methodology by Mosier et al. 2014 (Mosier, T. M. et al. 2014. 30-Arcsecond monthly climate surfaces with global land coverage. - Int. J. Climatol. 34: 2175–2188).

Data sets

The data sets have to be downloaded by the user and saved locally as netCDF files, or as generic grids (bil-files) in the case of Worldclim data, if downscaling shall be performed. Currently, these data sets are supported:

Installation

install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("cszang/tusk")

Usage

See ?interp_down for details.
