RCMIP5: Tools for Manipulating and Summarizing CMIP5 Data

Build Status CRAN_Status_Badge CRAN_Downloads_Badge

This package provides R functions for exploring, manipulating, and summarizing model outputs from the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (CMIP5).

Working with CMIP5 data can be tricky, forcing scientists to write custom scripts and programs. The RCMIP5 package aims to ease this process, providing a reproducible, robust, and high-performance set of functions to (i) explore what data have been downloaded, (ii) identify missing data, (iii) average (or apply other mathematical operations) across experimental ensembles, (iv) produce both temporal and spatial statistical summaries, and (v) produce easy-to-work-with graphical and data summaries.

More information about CMIP5 can be found on the project home page, as well as in Taylor et al. 2012, "An overview of CMIP5 and the experiment design" in Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society 93:485-498, 10.1175/BAMS-D-11-00094.1.
