Data associated with "A Comparison of 3-D Spherical Shell Thermal Convection results at Low to Moderate Rayleigh Number using ASPECT (version 2.2.0) and CitcomS (version 3.3.1)"
Data used to generate both ASPECT (Advanced Solver for Problems in Earth's ConvecTion) and CitcomS results in "A Comparison of 3-D Spherical Shell Thermal Convection results at Low to Moderate Rayleigh Number using ASPECT (version 2.2.0) and CitcomS (version 3.3.1)." ASPECT and CitcomS are both geodynamic codes allowing users to simulate problems in the convecting mantles of Earth-like planets. Tar files break down into folders for each of the models: A1, A3, A7, C1, C2, and C3. These models are taken from the paper "A benchmark study on mantle convection in a 3-D spherical shell using CitcomS." They are each models of simple, thermal convection at low Rayleigh number, the primary difference between them being how much the viscosity of the models varies from top to bottom. The A cases and C cases also have different planforms as detailed in the paper. The ASPECT file also has the annulus and radial folders which contain the files for Figures 1 and 3 for the paper, respectively. The ASPECT file subdirectories contain the ASPECT data presented in the paper, and the scripts used to generate the images for Figures 2 and 4-10. Scripts are set up to run in a Linux environment and make use of GMT (Generic Mapping Tools) to generate figures. The CitcomS file subdirectories contain the CitcomS data presented in the paper.
