Fig. 3


Time-averaged horizontal averages (upper panel) of the inner product of vorticity with vortex sources, , where are the various terms introduced in Eqs. (17) and (18) due to baroclinicity (), vortex stretching (), vortex compression (), vortex advection (), and combined galactic shear and rotation (), for Run 1Ωp (i.e. obtained by contracting Eq. (17) with ω). Lower panel shows the unsigned profiles averaged over upper and lower midplanes, normalised by the maximum of the baroclinicity term at the midplane, together with exponential fits, and the two scale heights used indicated in the legends.
