Far-from-equilibrium systems are still hard to study and the field is a work in progress, however, they can still be modelled using novel techniques within a wide array of experimental, computational and analytical approaches. In this report, we study one such system, the steady-state Rayleigh-Bènard Convection. An important observation we were able to see through the current study was how temperature took on a time independent trait yet maintained a spatially varying character. Our study employs a unique technique by using an Infrared camera to extrapolate thermal profiles and present it statistically. On a further note, the report also discusses the different approaches that can be adapted to extend the current study to turbulence, complex networks and information theory.
