a) Maximum negative velocities during the first 12 h of the emergence of active regions versus the heliocentric angle that corresponds to the position of the active regions at this point in time. Diamonds mark normal active regions; black squares mark reverse ones. The solid line corresponds to the nonlinear regress Eq. (2); dotted lines correspond to 99% confidence intervals for the means. b) Maximum negative velocities of convective flows in the quiet Sun versus the heliocentric angle.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.
