TLC: Tidally Locked Coordinates

Abstract: Tidally Locked Coordinates converts global climate model (GCM) output from standard/Earth-like coordinates into a tidally locked coordinate system. The transformations in Tidally Locked Coordinates are useful for plotting and analyzing GCM simulations of slowly rotating tidally locked planets such as Earth-like planets inside the habitable zone of small stars. They can be used to leverage the fact that a slowly rotating planet's climate will start to look approximately symmetric about the axis of insolation.
