cmsaf: A Toolbox for CM SAF NetCDF Data

The Satellite Application Facility on Climate Monitoring (CM SAF) is a ground segment of the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) and one of EUMETSATs Satellite Application Facilities. The CM SAF contributes to the sustainable monitoring of the climate system by providing essential climate variables related to the energy and water cycle of the atmosphere (<>). It is a joint cooperation of eight National Meteorological and Hydrological Services. The 'cmsaf' R-package includes a 'shiny' based interface for an easy application of the 'cmsafops' and 'cmsafvis' packages - the CM SAF R Toolbox. The Toolbox offers an easy way to prepare, manipulate, analyse and visualize CM SAF NetCDF formatted data. Other CF conform NetCDF data with time, longitude and latitude dimension should be applicable, but there is no guarantee for an error-free application. CM SAF climate data records are provided for free via (<>). Detailed information and test data are provided on the CM SAF webpage (<>).
