Title: Laboratory simulation of a morning inversion break-up for low Q/N

Description: A V shaped tank is filled with the thermally stratified water. Green dye is injected at the bottom and heating is initiated. The ratio of initial stratification (N^2) and heat flux (Q), N^2/Q, was relatively low. Note the advection by the upslope flows followed by the core sinking. For further details see Princevac and Fernando, JFM 2008.
