Distributions of migrators and non-migrators ending up in a radial bin in the range 10 < r < 13 kpc, estimated in the time period 0.5 < t < 1.5 Gyr for the gSa model. First row: the radial (left) and vertical (right) velocity distributions for stars which stay in the radial bin during the entire time. An increase of velocity dispersion is seen with time. Second row: stars which came from r < 6 kpc. Note that their velocity dispersions drop by about 40%. Third row: stars originting from r > 13 kpc. These are found to heat up upon arriving at the final radius. In all cases, final distributions (orange histogram) roughly match for each velocity component.
