Workspace Method wind_u_fieldIncludePlanetRotation


Maps the planet's rotation to an imaginary wind.

This method is of relevance if the observation platform is not
following the planet's rotation, and Doppler effects must be
considered. Examples include full disk observations from another
planet or a satellite not in orbit of the observed planet.

The rotation of the planet is not causing any Doppler shift for
1D and 2D simulations, and the method can only be used for 3D.
