RNCEP: Obtain, Organize, and Visualize NCEP Weather Data

This package contains functions to retrieve, organize, and visualize weather data from the NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis (http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/psd/data/gridded/data.ncep.reanalysis.html) and NCEP/DOE Reanalysis II (http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/psd/data/gridded/data.ncep.reanalysis2.html) datasets. Data are queried via the Internet and may be obtained for a specified spatial and temporal extent or interpolated to a point in space and time. We also provide functions to visualize these weather data on a map. There are also functions to simulate flight trajectories according to specified behavior using either NCEP wind data or data specified by the user.
