Zonal temperature and flow. The zonally averaged temperature (top) and differential rotation (bottom) are shown for four example cases with variable anomaly width Ψ and amplitude q . Note that the first three cases have similar EAA symmetric flows. The black arcs denote the width of the anomaly and the arc thickness scales with the amplitude. Parameters: Ra=4×107, τ=0
