[12] Jupiter in 2014/15: Final numerical report.


Jupiter in 2014/15: Final numerical report
(by J. Rogers & G. Adamoli)
 
Jupiter was generally normal in 2014/15, with no major upheavals in any of the domains, and no exceptional colouring of any zones.  The GRS was still exceptionally small and red, with an internal circulation period of 3.7 (0.1) days. The most notable region was the N. Temperate domain, which continued to evolve following the upheaval in 2012, as in the previous cycle. We present a detailed analysis of the JUPOS measurements, with zonal drift profiles.  The speed tables will be useful for predicting drifts of features during the Juno mission in 2016-2017.
