An iterative method is proposed for finding approximate solutions of an initial and boundary value problem for a nonstationary generalized Boussinesq model for thermally driven convection of fluids with temperature dependent viscosity and thermal conductivity. Under certain conditions, it is proved that such approximate solutions converge to a solution of the original problem; moreover, convergence-rate bounds for the constructed approximate solutions are also obtained.
