Summary: Using the network method, we investigate numerically the behavior of three-dimensional finite-amplitude disturbances of the advective flow generated by a constant longitudinal temperature gradient in a rotating horizontal fluid layer. At a fixed Prandtl number (Pr=56.7), neutral curves are obtained for various values of Taylor number. We also consider the behavior of finite-amplitude disturbances of advective flow beyond the stability threshold, and analyze stability of two-dimensional disturbances under rapid rotation.
