The red line is from Simon-Miller & Gierasch (2010); the blue line from Porco et al. (2003); and the black line from Simon et al. (2015). The three wind profiles match at most latitudes; small differences are often associated with features (such as storms and disturbances) that have different velocities from the general winds.
