Fig. 4


Mollweide (top) and orthographic (bottom) projections of the model Stokes parameters, qA (left) and uA (right), for a uniform direction of the GMF towards (l0,b0) = (80°,0°); these are roughly the values inferred from starlight polarization (Heiles 1996). The orthographic projections are centred on the Galactic poles. Galactic coordinates in degrees are shown on all plots.
