This software is an R package that provides the code required to calculate and categorise the physical phenomena known as heatwaves and cold-spells. This package is an improvement on a previous R version in that it is much faster (C++ implementation) while also providing inputs and outputs that match the python version. This package also provides a full suite of functions that allow for the publication ready visualisation of these events.
