Content moved from Bénard cell[edit]

In reading about this type of convection (see Rayleigh-Bénard convection: structures and dynamics By Alexander V. Getling) I formed the impression that the primary topic really was Rayleigh-Bénard convection itself; the Benard cell is just one aspect of the broader convection patterns and instabilities; having "Benard cell" as the primary article seemed an unnecessary narrowing of the subject area. Hence I moved the content from Bénard cell here.

To outline the changes related to this move:

Removing mention of examples of Bénard cells, such as the Giants' Staircase, patterns commonly seen in dried mud, and the granulation observed in the Sun is unforgivable. David Spector (talk) 16:04, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Video not working[edit]

The embedded video is not working, but the problem lies here: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:B%C3%A9nard_cells_convection.ogv I wasn't able to figure out to make it work... --129.13.72.198 (talk) 12:44, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
