Specific AM, l, as a function of scaled radius for old stars in three direct merger remnants. For each encounter a pair of plots is shown, where stars are selected on their heights above (or below) the galaxy midplane: |z| ≤ 1 kpc (upper panels) and |z| > 1 kpc (lower panels). In each panel stars originally in the primary galaxy are shown as black points, stars originally in the satellite as blue points, and satellite stars with |z| > 5 kpc as red points. The specific AM is in units of 100 kpc km s-1.
