Zonal profiles of non-dimensional axial velocity a and non-dimensional axial kinetic helicity b in dynamo models without (left) and with (right) a plume. The minimum and maximum axial velocity values are [ −40.4, 34.4] (left) and [ −19.3, 18.3] (right); the minimum and maximum axial kinetic helicity values are [ −174.6, 137.8] (left) and [ −23.6, 24.8] (right).
