The red curves are from a calculation that uses the LS EOS everywhere even in regions below about 1e10 g/cc where it is probably not too accurate. The black curves are the same calculation, but when a NSE approach is used below about 1e10 g/cc. The entropy plots in the upper right of each panel are illuminating, because they may explain why those who use LS everywhere get weaker convection (shallower entropy gradient and less extensive) while LS + NSE approaches get stronger and more extensive convection.
