meteoland - Landscape meteorology tools
With the aim to assist research of climatic impacts on forests, the R
meteoland provides utilities to estimate daily weather
variables at any position over complex terrains:
- Spatial interpolation of daily weather records from meteorological stations.
- Statistical correction of meteorological data series (e.g. from climate models).
A more detailed introduction to the package functionality can be found in De Cáceres et al. (2018).
Package installation and documentation
meteoland can be found at CRAN,
but the version in this repository may not be the most recent one.
Latest stable versions can be downloaded and installed from GitHub as
devtools should be installed first):
Alternatively, users can have help to run package functions directly as package vignettes, by forcing their inclusion in installation:
devtools::install_github("vegmod/meteoland", build_opts = c("--no-resave-data", "--no-manual"))
