This set of strip-maps shows Jupiter's South Temperate domain (between the S1 and S2 jets, as marked) and S.S. Temperate domain (between the S2 and S3 jets), from PJ17 to PJ23. They are taken from the planet-wide maps posted in our reports on each perijove (on the Think Tank page and the BAA Jupiter Section web site). It is aligned on the S2-AWOs (long-lived white ovals labelled A1 to A8), so as to show the changes in the cyclonic intervals between them. The GRS and Oval BA are also included. To minimise discontinuities, 90 deg of each map is repeated. This is Figure 17 from our latest report on Jupiter in 2019, which is otherwise derived from ground-based images, posted on the BAA Jupiter Section web site: direct link:
