* Name:
* palRverot
* Purpose:
* Velocity component in a given direction due to Earth rotation
* Language:
* Starlink ANSI C
* Type of Module:
* Library routine
* Invocation:
* double palRverot ( double phi, double ra, double da, double st );
* Arguments:
* phi = double (Given)
* latitude of observing station (geodetic) (radians)
* ra = double (Given)
* apparent RA (radians)
* da = double (Given)
* apparent Dec (radians)
* st = double (Given)
* Local apparent sidereal time.
* Returned Value:
* palRverot = double
* Component of Earth rotation in direction RA,DA (km/s).
* The result is +ve when the observatory is receding from the
* given point on the sky.
* Description:
* Calculate the velocity component in a given direction due to Earth
* rotation.
*
* The simple algorithm used assumes a spherical Earth, of
* a radius chosen to give results accurate to about 0.0005 km/s
* for observing stations at typical latitudes and heights. For
* applications requiring greater precision, use the routine
* palPvobs.
