CSIndicators is an R package that gathers generalised methods for the flexible computation of climate-related indicators. Each method represents a specific mathematical approach which is combined with the possibility of selecting a flexible time period to define the indicator. This enables a wide range of possibilities for tailoring indicators to sectorial climate service applications. This package is intended for sub-seasonal, seasonal and decadal climate predictions, but its methods are also applicable to other time scales. Additionally, this package is compatible with the CSTools R package for climate forecast post-processing.
