The inviscid linear stability of an unsteady stratified shear flow slowly varying in time is investigated. Results show that due to unsteadiness disturbances growth starts at Richardson number even much lower than predicted by the steady theory.

The inviscid linear stability of an unsteady stratified shear flow slowly varying in time is investigated. Results show that due to unsteadiness disturbances growth starts at Richardson number even much lower than predicted by the steady theory.
