FIG. 1.

(a) Thin liquid film flowing over a heater. The Marangoni stress at the upstream edge of the heater opposes the gravitational flow, which leads to the formation of a fluid ridge. (b) Isothermal liquid film flowing over step-down topography. The fluid ridge forms in response to the capillary pressure gradient induced by the topography.
