Last summer, Rob Guralnick, my postdoc advisor at the time, challenged me to come up with a way of estimating climate stability from a series of rasters representing climate change through time (such as one might obtain from WorldClim or PaleoView). We were discussing this because we had a collaborator that was interested in the role climate stability might have played in generating observed geographic patterns of biodiversity in the Neotropics. Less than a year later, the paper's out, and so is an R package that provides the climate stability estimates I generated, as well as tools for you to generate your own climate stability estimates!
The paper can be found here: https://doi.org/10.17161/bi.v14i0.9786
The package is on CRAN: cran.r-project.org/package=climateStability
And here is a small vignette explaining how it works: climatestability_vignette.html
