Abstract

As a tank of fluid with nonlinear temperature and salinity gradient, a series of convection cell is generated under the critical condition is exceeded. The stability of this fluid against convection is investigated and the effect of Coriolis force is also discussed. From the results of this article, it shows that the stationary onset of this salt-fingers convection is similar to the small-gap Taylor problem if without the effect of Coriolis force. The investigation concludes that effect of Coriolis force is a stabilizing factor for the onset of instability.
