[aspect-devel] The output of nonadiabatic_temperature

Hi all,

I am doing a compressible model and try to plot the plume structure. The
plume is defined by the high temperature difference from current average
temperature at every depth. I see ASPECT has an output "
nonadiabatic_temperature". I wonder if this output serves my purpose?

What I concerned is if the adiabatic temperature is not exactly the same as
my average temperature at every depth. When I set up my model, I initialize
the adiabatic temperature profile with specific parameters. In theory, it
should be the same as the average temperature at every depth. But, after
billion year calculation, the average temperature at every depth deviates
away from the initial adiabatic temperature profile.

So, I wonder if there is an output "average_subtracted_temperature" in
ASPECT? If so, it could also serve the plume in the incompressible
convection model.
