@article{Currie2020GenerationOS, title={Generation of shear flows and vortices in rotating anelastic convection.}, author={Laura K. Currie and Steven M. Tobias}, journal={arXiv: Fluid Dynamics}, year={2020} }

We consider the effect of stratification on systematic, large-scale flows generated in anelastic convection. We present results from three-dimensional numerical simulations of convection in a rotating plane layer in which the angle between the axis of rotation and gravity is allowed to vary. This model is representative of different latitudes of a spherical body. We consider two distinct parameter regimes: (i) weakly rotating and (ii) rapidly rotating. In each case, we examine the effect of… CONTINUE READING
