Abstract

This is a set of codes for estimation of the critical parameters for the onset of thermo-compositional convection in rotating spherical fluid shells. The main numerical code solves a generalised eigenvalue problem obtained using a Galerkin spectral projection method originally published by Zhang and Busse (1987). Early versions of the code were written for the article of Ardes et al. (1997). Simitev modified the code to include a governing equation for the concentration. Silva ported the code to Fortran 95 and linked to open source libraries, wrote auxilliary scripting tools, updated the visualisation tools and prepared documentation.
