Position-velocity (p-v) plots taken along the kinematic minor axis (PA = 19°) of NGC 1068 help identify outflow signatures in several molecular tracers: a) CO(3–2) (color scale in Jy beam-1 and contours: 3σ, 5σ, 10σ, 20σ, 30σ, 45σ, 70σ, and 95σ; 1σ = 2.8 mJy beam-1). b) CO(6–5) (color scale in Jy beam-1 and contours: 2.5σ, 4σ, 6σ, 8σ,10σ, 14σ, and 18σ; 1σ = 23 mJy beam-1). c) HCN(4–3) (color scale in Jy beam-1 and contours: 2.5σ, 4σ, 6σ, 8σ, 12σ, 16σ, 20σ, 26σ, and 30σ; 1σ = 1.8 mJy beam-1). d) HCO+(4–3) (color scale in Jy beam-1 and contours: 2.5σ, 4σ, 6σ, 8σ, 10σ, and 12σ; 1σ = 2.0 mJy beam-1). The velocity scale (⟨ Vres ⟩) is identical to that of Fig. 14. The spatial scale (Δy) along the minor axis refers to the AGN locus; positive offsets on the northern side. The black dashed lines at ⟨ Vres ⟩ = ± 50 km s-1 identify the expected range of virial motions along the minor axis. The red solid lines in panels a) and c) indicate the edges of the bands beyond which data have been flagged (⟨ Vres ⟩ < − 170 km s-1 in CO(3–2) and ⟨ Vres ⟩ > 260 km s-1 in HCN(4–3)). Similarly we also identify the 9″ field-of-view in the CO(6–5) p-v plot of panel b).
