Viscosity stratification can create new instabilities in a shear flow, or act to stabilise it. This talk will examine mechanisms of such instabilities, and situations where they can occur. It will also contrast these with instabilities in density-stratified flows, and examine the combination of the two. The aim of this talk is to invite future research on viscosity stratification in the context of the Sun or Earth’s interior.
