Fig.~\ref{fig:convection-box-stats} shows the results of visualizing the data
that can be found in columns 2 (the time) plotted against columns 9 and 10
-(root mean square and maximal velocities). It shows clearly that the simulation

+Fig.~\ref{fig:convection-box-stats} shows clearly that the simulation
enters a steady state after about $t\approx 0.1$ and then changes very little. This can also be observed using the
graphical output files from which we have generated
Fig.~\ref{fig:convection-box-fields}. One can look further into this data to
