Abstract: The problem of turbulent thermal convection in the Earth's liquid core is considered. Following assumptions on decreasing of the spatial scales due to rapid rotation, we propose a subgrid model of eddy diffusivity used in the large-scale model. This approach makes it possible to model realistic regimes with small Ekman and Rossby numbers and with a sufficiently large Rayleigh number. An estimate obtained for the averaged kinetic energy is comparable with observations. The model includes rotation of the solid core due to viscous torque.

Keywords: thermal convection, subgrid viscosity, large-scale model of convection, viscous forces.
