Winds on Saturn

The Cassini website has some nice graphs showing wind and temperature in the troposphere and stratosphere on Saturn. It looks as though the winds are strongest near the equator which isn't too surprising really. The plots themselves are far better than misleading graphs on shampoo bottles as they manage to put tick marks on both axes (they even use a logarithmic scale on the altitude axis). Interestingly, the stratosphere at the poles is actually warmer than near the equator.
