Best-fitting synthetic (convolved) wind fields derived for each molecule in 2016 and 2017, assuming a Gaussian zonal wind velocity profile as a function of latitude. 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.
