This dataset contains the results of the bifurcation analysis presented in the associated publication. These are used to generate figures 2, 3, 7 and 8, i.e. the bifurcation diagrams for Pr=0.7, Pr=1 and Pr=7, and also as Pr varies. The full details of the state-tracking algorithm used are available in the paper.


Software / Usage instructions

The data are stored in text files, with values separated by tab characters. Each file is named for the figure and the particular branch on that figure it describes. For figures 2, 3 and 8, each row corresponds to a particular value of Richardson number, given in the first column, and the second column gives the amplitude of the state. The third and fourth columns, where applicable, give respectively the enstrophy and the measure m described in the manuscript. For figure 7a, the first column gives the Prandtl number and the remaining columns give the Richardson number for each branch, and similarly for 7b with the amplitude replacing the Richardson number.
