Horizontally Temperature-Inhomogeneous Rotating Annuli

Convection in rotating inhomogeneously heated annuli is the second simplest case for the mutual positions of the three main determining vectors: the vector of the gravity acceleration, ̄g, and the vector of the angular rotation rate,̄Ω , are collinear to each other, while the vector of the external temperature gradient is perpendicular to the two. The horizontal temperature gradient in a non-rotating fluids corresponds to the convection in the layer between two vertical walls at different temperatures; for the rotating fluid, an analog to the vertical layer is the cylindrical layer.
