In a recent paper, I ran simulations of an experiment of convective generation of internal waves in water. Here is a visualization of the flow.

I also compared the waves produced in this simulation to waves produced in several "simulations of the simulation." Here I compare waves in the full simulation to waves produced in a bulk forcing by Reynolds stresses model, and waves produced by interface forcing models, using either the 5C or 8C isotherm as the interface.
