You can have a global perspective on spatial data handling in R here:
and some useful packages are also here:
http://cran.r-project.org/web/views/Environmetrics.html - see section
Hydrology and Oceanography
The base package that handles spatial information is sp - to be coupled
with rgdal for import/export. Other packages address more specific
