Upper bounds for the complex growth rate of an arbitrary oscillatory perturbation which may be neutral or unstable of thermohaline convection of Veronis (G.Veronis,J.MarineRes.,23,(1965) 1-17) type with the viscosity variation effects included heated from below are obtained which in particular yield sufficient condition for the validity the “principle of the exchange of stabilities” for this configuration. Similar results are also obtained for thermohaline convection of Stern (ME Stern, Tellus, 12,(1960), 171-175) type with the viscosity variation effect included. The results obtained herein are uniformly valid for all combinations of dynamically free and rigid boundaries.
