Fig. 1

Latitudinal profile of axisymmetric CMB heat flux. The lines show the total CMB heat flux modified by an anomaly with different opening angles Ψ (each value of Ψ is represented by a different colour). Note that all profiles are normalised such that there is no net contribution from the anomaly to the mean CMB heat flux (q 0=1, grey). Parameters: τ=0, q =1
