(This paper analyses the anticyclonic ovals in the NNTZ, and identifies one which has existed since 1993 or earlier, which we name NN-LRS-1.  A similar reddish oval in the South Polar region has probably existed since 1994 or earlier. The interaction of the ovals with the wind speed gradient across the NNTZ is considered in detail.)
