The effect of vertical throughflow on the onset of convection, induced by an applied vertical temperature gradient in a vertical cylinder is studied analytically using linear stability theory. This problem is important to hydrologists to investigate under what conditions convection is taking place in a well or borehole. The effect of double diffusion is included. Both nonoscillatory and oscillatory situations are studied.
