Caption: Figure 3.

Fit to the grand sum of Alice exposures near perihelion. Top: the grand sum with background (green), CO model (red), and total (blue, includes atomic emissions) fits overlaid. Regions shown in lighter hues are not used to constrain the fits. Bottom: the residual of the total fit with 3σ uncertainty in the grand sum (purple) overlaid. Masked regions (shaded gray) are not used to set upper limits.
