"These reviews will be particularly valuable to those concerned with atmosphere physics and ocean hydrodynamics."
This title presents some basic topics within the area of time-dependent nonlinear convection. The first chapter gives an authoritative review of time-dependence related to instabilities in nonlinear Rayleigh-Bénard convection. Chapter 2 reviews the different convection cell patterns and focuses on their phase instabilities. Time-dependence in free-convection boundary layers and in porous media is discussed in Chapters 3 and 4. Chapter 5 is devoted to the transient layer formation caused by double-diffusive convection, while the final chapter discusses time-dependence in nonlinear convection driven by non-uniform surface tension at a free surface.
