diffrot_map

sunpy.physics.differential_rotation.diffrot_map(smap, time=None, dt=None, pad=False, **diffrot_kwargs)[source] [edit on github]

Function to apply solar differential rotation to a sunpy map.

Parameters:
  • smap (map) – Original map that we want to transform.
  • time (sunpy-compatible time) – date/time at which the input co-ordinate will be rotated to.
  • dt (Quantity or datetime) – Desired interval between the input map and returned map.
  • pad (bool) – Whether to create a padded map for submaps to don’t loose data
Returns:

diffrot_map (map) – A map with the result of applying solar differential rotation to the input map.
