Model Tropical Cyclone Wind Speeds

Allows users to input tracking data for a hurricane or other tropical storm, along with a data frame of grid points at which to model wind speeds. Functions in this package will then calculate wind speeds at each point based on wind model equations. This modeling framework is currently set up to model winds for North American locations with Atlantic basin storms. This work was supported in part by grants from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (R00ES022631), the National Science Foundation (1331399), and the Department of Energy (DE-FG02-08ER64644).
