Annual Solar Wind Speed Maps

Synoptic Source Surface Maps in the Carrington Rotation Number versus Heliographic Latitude.
The Source Surface was assumed to be at 2.5 solar radii. The IPS-CAT method was applied to derive these maps. The data file for each year includes 11 CRs.

Note: "dat 1" from the CAT analysis using only V data (Tokumaru et al., 2010) and "dat 2" from the CAT analysis using V and g data (Tokumaru et al., 2012).
