However, the particular variable [gamma], the main concern in our study, is the ambient thermal stratification parameter [[equivalent to] d[T'.sub.[infinity]](z)/dz for Boussinesq flow of liquids or gases, [equivalent to] d[T'.sub.[infinity]](z)/dz + g/[C.sub.p] for a perfect gas with pressure work term retained], and z is height.
