Fig. 3.4 a-d Time-mean circulation driven by purely thermal forcing obtained from laboratory experiments (Wang and Huang, 2005).

differential heating can be very complicated, and is sensitive to the slope of the boundary where heating/cooling applies.

Challenges posed by laboratory experiments Laboratory experiments often pose exciting questions. In the experiments described above, results turn out quite differently from previous results and raise many questions:
