Average latitude of sunspot groups at different cycle phases. Colors indicate different cycles (cycles 12–20). The thick red curve shows the polynomial fit given by Eq. (1) to all cycles. The two vertical dotted lines indicate the times when the overlapping of cycles strongly affects the average latitudes.
