Fig. 10


Total normalised axial angular momentum (AAM) (kg m s-1) and maximum zonal velocity (umax, m s-1) for several simulations as the left, and right panels, respectively. The solid line shows the Std Full, the dotted line the Std Prim, the dashed line the Deep ΔTeq → pole and the dashed-dotted line the Reduced pmax simulations (see Table 2 for explanation of simulation names). In terms of AAM conservation the Std Full simulation is representative of our simulation set, and the remaining three included simulations (Std Prim, Deep ΔTeq → pole and Reduced pmax) the only examples where AAM conservation is much poorer. Note the total simulation times of the individual runs (i.e. Std Prim, Std Full, Deep ΔTeq → pole and Reduced pmax) are different.
