Hi Jarrett,

If there is a simple way to do this in R, then I recommend using the ReadGrib function in rNOMADS to read the data in, then apply whatever method you like.  However, I don't know much about rasters so I can't recommend anything more specific than that.

Subject: [Rnomads-user] raster bricks

I’ve been casting about for a conversion function, but is there a way to go from grabs that have been read in to raster bricks? There are a number of geospatial analyses that I’d like to do that are easier/faster with rasters, and I haven’t been able to convert easily between formats save by saving them and using wgrib or wgrib2 to convert to netcdf files, which feels like an unnecessary stopgap.
