plot_travel_times(source_depth, phase_list=('ttbasic', ), min_degrees=0, max_degrees=180, npoints=50, model='iasp91', plot_all=True, legend=True, verbose=False, fig=None, ax=None, show=True)[source]

Returns a travel time plot and any created axis instance of this plot.

  • source_depth (float) Source depth in kilometers.
  • min_degrees (float) minimum distance from the source (in degrees)
  • max_degrees (float) maximum distance from the source (in degrees)
  • npoints (int) Number of points to plot.
  • phase_list (list of str, optional) List of phase names to plot.
  • model (str) string containing the model to use.
  • plot_all (bool) By default all rays, even those travelling in the other direction and thus arriving at a distance of 360 - x degrees are shown. Set this to False to only show rays arriving at exactly x degrees.
  • legend (bool) Whether or not to show the legend
  • verbose (bool) Whether to print information about epicentral distances that did not have an arrival.
  • fig (:class:`matplotlib.axes.Axes) Figure to plot in. If not given, a new figure instance will be created.
  • ax Axes to plot in. If not given, a new figure with an axes will be created.

param show: Show the plot. type show: bool :type ax: matplotlib.Figure.figure :returns: ax :rtype: matplotlib.axes.Axes
