REAL FUNCTION sla_RVEROT (PHI, RA, DA, ST)
*+
* - - - - - - -
* R V E R O T
* - - - - - - -
*
* Velocity component in a given direction due to Earth rotation
* (single precision)
*
* Given:
* PHI real latitude of observing station (geodetic)
* RA,DA real apparent RA,DEC
* ST real local apparent sidereal time
*
* PHI, RA, DEC and ST are all in radians.
*
* Result:
* Component of Earth rotation in direction RA,DA (km/s)
*
* Sign convention:
* The result is +ve when the observatory is receding from the
* given point on the sky.
*
* Accuracy:
* 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
* sla_PVOBS.
