how to set contourf plot colorbar narrow?

Dear all,

I make a contourf plot but I think the colorbar is too wide. Can I make it narrower (slimmer)?

plt.contourf(data)
cbar=plt.colorbar()

??

thanks for any suggestions.

cheers,

Chao

Yes, you can use the aspect kwarg. The default is 20. Try

cbar = plt.colorbar(aspect=40)
