[44.02] Modeling of the Solar Convection Zone

S. Basu, D. J. Bercik (Michigan State U.), A. Nordlund (Copenhagen U. Obs.), R. F. Stein (Michigan State U.)

We present results from a simulation of a 6 x 6 x 3 Mm region of the upper solar convection zone at twice the resolution (25 km horizontally and 15-35 km vertically) of our previous calculation. We compare identical times at the two resolutions to show the effect on downdrafts and other properties of convection.
