Various Earth-related parameters (such as radius).

The following radius parameters are available as class attributes:

  • pygplates.Earth.equatorial_radius_in_kms: radius at equator (6378.137 kms)
  • pygplates.Earth.polar_radius_in_kms: radius at the poles (6356.7523142 kms)
  • pygplates.Earth.mean_radius_in_kms: mean radius (6371.009 kms)

For example, to access the mean radius:

earth_mean_radius_in_kms = pygplates.Earth.mean_radius_in_kms

Note

The radius parameters are based on the WGS-84 coordinate system.
