Video 1 shows the flow structure evolution of the stream function field from Ra = 22000 to Ra = 23500 at R = 1.6 during the same time history as in Figure 7a. Video 2 shows the flow structure evolution of the temperature field during the same time history as in Figure 9. Video 3 shows the flow structure evolution of the stream function field during the same time history as in Figure 10.
