In this paper, we are concerned with the solvability of the initial boundary value problem of a system which describes double-diffusive convection phenomena in some porous medium under general domains, especially unbounded domains. In previous works where the boundedness of the space domain is imposed, some global solvability results have been already derived. However, when we consider our problem in general domains, some compactness theorems are not available. Hence it becomes difficult to follow the same strategies as before. Nevertheless, we can assure the global existence of a unique solution via the contraction method. Moreover, it is revealed that the global solvability holds for higher space dimension and larger class of the initial data than those assumed in previous works.
