Although this color of this POI is different than the GRS, it may have structures and properties similar to

that of the GRS. If so, it could provide more clues about cyclonal structure and duration on Jupiter; especially when they appear in EB's which seem to act like 'jet streams'... How could such structures persist in the environment present in the EB's? Are the Cyclonal winds stronger than those in the surrounding environment of the EB? Or is there another mechanism at work here?
