Occurrence frequency (dotted lines) and width of the convective plumes normalized by the radius at the top of the radiative zone (solid lines), estimated at the base of the convective zone and plotted as a function of log g. The plume occurrence frequency, νp, is assumed to be equal to the convective turnover frequency, ωc, which was estimated via the mixing-length theory. Each color is associated with a mass.
