Very high resolution movie of the C-shell

Movie showing the evolution of the velocity magnitude of a 1024^3 resolution run of Carbon-burning shell. This is the very high resolution follow-up simulation of the 512^3 resolution above. This movie shows the turbulence in the central convective zone and gravity waves in the top and bottom stable regions. In addition, this movie nicely shows the Kelvin-Helmhotz (shear) instability developing at the top boundary due to the fast horizontal motion of the convective flow when it is deflected and "de"celerated by the boundary. Results from Cristini et al 2016, in prep.
