### Abstract

The high resolution computer simulations of two-dimensional convection using the anelastic approximation were discussed. The convection was found to be dominated by a large-scale coherent flow composed of ascending and descending superplumes. A power law exponent of 0.28 for the Nusselt-Rayleigh number scaling was also elaborated.
