Usage

In literature:

Upon tracing on his maps, he found that his latitudinal route had been two degrees, or one hundred and twenty miles, to the westward.

The Grampians of the south consist of three ranges covering a surface which extends latitudinally 54 miles and longitudinally 20 miles.
"Three Expeditions into the Interior of Eastern Australia, Vol 2 (of 2)" by Thomas Mitchell
Its principal mountain-ranges are latitudinal or from west to east, only the minor ones taking the opposite or longitudinal direction.

This appears from the frequent meridional and latitudinal diversities and contrasts, to which allusion has been made.
"The Philosophy of the Weather" by Thomas Belden Butler
This we may call the latitudinal co-ordinate.
"Encyclopaedia Britannica, 11th Edition, Volume 2, Slice 7" by Various
Latitudinally, the wild turkey was supposed not to extend beyond the line of the Rocky Mountains.

In news:

They lie between the 30th and 35th latitudinal parallels, across the globe, above and below the equator.

In science:

This is consistent with observations of coronal emission, chromospheric emission, and latitudinal differential rotation, which set in exactly where stars are believed to form convective envelopes, i.e., around spectral type A7 –F0.
The rotation-magnetic field relation
It is worth noting that, since the Sun’s axis is inclined with respect to the normal to the ecliptic, a latitudinal asymmetry in the solar core could contribute to the annual variation found in decay rates [1-3].
Power Spectrum Analysis of BNL Decay-Rate Data
The corresponding number of longitudinal grid points (Nlon ) is always twice that of the latitudinal grid points (Nlat ).
Atmospheric circulation of tidally locked exoplanets: a suite of benchmark tests for dynamical solvers
For example, Dobbs-Dixon et al. (2010) truncate their latitudinal grid at Φ = ±70◦ in their simulations.
Atmospheric circulation of tidally locked exoplanets: a suite of benchmark tests for dynamical solvers
Alternatively, one can use the notation NN ′ hLNv where N ′ h is the number of latitudinal points between the north/south pole and equator.

The functions exhibit a latitudinal trend in amplitude.
Estimation and testing for spatially indexed curves with application to ionospheric and magnetic field trends
The amplitude of the foF2 curves exhibits a nonlinear latitudinal trend; it decreases as the latitude increases; see Figure 1.
Estimation and testing for spatially indexed curves with application to ionospheric and magnetic field trends
On the other hand, the latitudinally averaged results suggest that these characteristics are not maintained at all latitudes leading, on average, to a thicker tachocline centered only around 0.01R⊙ below rcz .
The solar tachocline and its variation (?)
Some attempts have been made to infer latitudinal variations in the tachocline profile from observations (Antia et al., 1998; Charbonneau et al., 1999a), but no compelling evidence has been found yet.
The solar tachocline and its variation (?)
The actual pulsar wind has a strong latitudinal dependence of the particle energy.
The Crab Nebula: interpretation of CHANDRA observations
They were motivated by COMPTEL observations of the inner Galaxy, which show some evidence for an excess emission with a wide latitudinal distribution (∼20◦ FWHM), that could correspond to the large-scale height of low-mass X-ray binaries (Bloemen & Bykov 1997).
X- and Gamma-Ray Line Emission Processes
In the equatorial plane, the field is purely axial; everywhere else, the field is a vector sum of radial and latitudinal components.
The Hanle Effect as a Diagnostic of Magnetic Fields in Stellar Envelopes IV. Application to Polarized P Cygni Wind Lines
Both toroidal and latitudinal components begin to develop as the flow draws the field out in radius (see Fig. 10 and App. B).
The Hanle Effect as a Diagnostic of Magnetic Fields in Stellar Envelopes IV. Application to Polarized P Cygni Wind Lines
The radial component of the field decreases asymptotically as r−2, whereas the toroidal component will decrease as r−1 sin ϑ, and the latitudinal component as r−3 sin 2ϑ, for ϑ the stellar co-latitude.
The Hanle Effect as a Diagnostic of Magnetic Fields in Stellar Envelopes IV. Application to Polarized P Cygni Wind Lines
At radii where the Sobolev optical depth is thin, the latitudinal field component is negligible (although it does account for the small level of U polarization), and the toroidal component is starting to become comparable to Br .
