The zonal velocity is shown at the level in the model that corresponds roughly to the estimated level of the cloud tops from which the observed flow is inferred (0.1 bar). As in the Jupiter simulation, a prograde (superrotating) equatorial jet and alternating off-equatorial jets are clearly recognizable, as are large Rossby wave packets. As observed, the jets are stronger and wider in the Saturn than in the Jupiter simulation, especially near the equator.
