From: Idealized numerical experiments on microscale eddies in the Venusian cloud layer

Figure 8

Time-height cross sections of area-mean θ w ¯ (upper panels) and q w ¯ (lower panels). These fluxes normalized by maximum flux magnitudes in Figure 7 are calculated from the experiments under the condition U Z  = 0 m · s–1 · km–1 for (a) case B1, (b) case B3, and (c) case B5. Thick contours in upper and lower panels show area-mean potential temperature (K) and mixing ratio (q × 106; kg · kg–1), respectively. Thin-dashed contours indicate negative values of normalized θ w ¯ .
