Influence of various model parameters on EAA contribution. Impact of a anomaly amplitude, b tilt angle, c shell geometry, and d vigour of convection on the EAA contribution for varying anomaly width Ψ. The coloured vertical lines denote the colatitude of the tangent cylinder. Reference parameters (unless specified otherwise): Ra=4×107, q =1.0, τ=0, β=0.35
