Given latitude and longitude values entered as decimal degrees (DD), this
function returns a list (atomic vector) of STNID values, which can
be used in
get_GSOD to query for specific stations as an
argument in the
station parameter of that function.
nearest_stations(LAT, LON, distance)
Latitude expressed as decimal degrees (DD) (WGS84)
Longitude expressed as decimal degrees (DD) (WGS84)
Distance in kilometres from point for which stations are to be returned.
vector object of station identification numbers
