Classical Rayleigh-Benard convection occurs when a horizontal fluid layer is heated sufficiently strongly from below. In more recent times, there has been increased interest in structured convection, when the heating that is applied is no longer uniform but rather spatially varying in some way. Here, we examine the effect of structured convection in a fluid layer when both the lower and upper boundaries are heated so that their temperatures fluctuate sinusoidally over a common long length scale offset by some phase
