Vadasz and Olek (1999a,b, 2000a,b) and Vadasz (1999a,b, 2001a-d, 2002, 2010a) demonstrated theoretically that the transition from steady to chaotic (weak-turbulent) convection in saturated porous media yields a system that is equivalent to Lorenz equations (Lorenz, 1963). Vadasz (1999c, 2006) presented similar results for the corresponding problem of convection in pure fluids and Vadasz and Olek (1998) for centrifugally induced convection in a rotating porous layer (see also Vadasz, 1998; Straughan, 2001).
