R package for netCDF or TIFF data extraction

I am using satellite imagery data obtained from NEODAAS to record sea surface temperature, salinity, chlorophyll-a/turbidity and thermal fronts around wales over the past 5 years and I have been sent the data as GeoTIFFs and netCDF files. I have inputted the TIFF files into ArcMap 10 and can read and interpret those files no problem, however I now need to find a way to extract individual pixel data values in order to establish parameters at specific coordinates.

I am aware that this should be possible in R, however I am unsure if such a package to extract data from a TIFF or netCDF file already exists. I would so hope so as I don’t really want to reinvent the wheel if a programme already exists for such a purpose. Can anyone point me in the direction of such an R package or code?

I am using ArcMap 10.4.1 and R Studio version 4.1.0
