Caption: Figure 2.

Doppler wind velocity maps based on ALMA observations of CH3CN, HC3N, and HNC in 2016 August (Ls = 82°) and 2017 May (Ls = 90°). Velocity contours are labeled in units of m s−1. Wire-frame sphere indicates Titan’s orientation with respect to the ALMA field of view. The spatial resolution (FWHM of the elliptical Gaussian beam) is shown in the lower left of each panel. The data for these figures are available in FITS format on Zenodo: doi:10.5281/zenodo.3965956.
