thunder: Computation and Visualisation of Atmospheric Convective Parameters

Collection of functions for rapid computation and visualisation of convective parameters commonly used in the operational prediction of severe convective storms. Core algorithm is based on a highly optimized 'C++' code linked into 'R' via 'Rcpp'. Highly efficient engine allows to derive thermodynamic and kinematic parameters from large numerical datasets such as reanalyses or operational Numerical Weather Prediction models in a reasonable amount of time. Package has been developed since 2017 by research meteorologists specializing in severe thunderstorms.
