a, Distribution of the difference between the initial (Lz(init)) and ‘measured’ (Lz(obs); after error convolution) z-angular momentum for stars from the GUMS model with ‘measured’ distances between 5 and 10 kpc and with galactic longitude l = (−60°, −20°). b, Mean value of the difference over the full sky.
