Plotting radial slices

This example shows how to plot slices of constant radial distance from a MAS model output.

First, load the required modules.

from psipy.model import MASOutput
from psipy.data import sample_data

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

Next, load a set of MAS output files. You will need to change this line to point to a folder with MAS files in them.

mas_path = sample_data.mas_helio()
model = MASOutput(mas_path)

Each MAS model contains a number of variables. The variable names can be accessed using the .variables attribute.

print(model.variables)

Out:

['br', 'rho', 'vr']

Set parameters for plotting. The first line will give us a horizontal errorbar underneath the plots. The second line is the index to select for the radial slice.

cbar_kwargs = {'orientation': 'horizontal'}
r_idx = 139

Plot the slices

fig, axs = plt.subplots(ncols=3, tight_layout=True)

ax = axs[0]
model['vr'].plot_radial_cut(r_idx, ax=ax, cbar_kwargs=cbar_kwargs)
model['br'].contour_radial_cut(r_idx, levels=[0], ax=ax, colors='white')
ax = axs[1]
model['rho'].plot_radial_cut(r_idx, ax=ax, cbar_kwargs=cbar_kwargs)
model['br'].contour_radial_cut(r_idx, levels=[0], ax=ax, colors='white')
ax = axs[2]
model['br'].plot_radial_cut(r_idx, ax=ax, cbar_kwargs=cbar_kwargs)
model['br'].contour_radial_cut(r_idx, levels=[0], ax=ax, colors='black')

plt.show()
vr, r=236.46$R_{\odot}$, rho, r=235.72$R_{\odot}$, br, r=235.72$R_{\odot}$
