2D Streaming Instability

Evolution of the streaming instability in a 2D local shearing box (x direction is radial, y direction is vertical) at a resolution of 1024x1024. The movie shows particle density. Because it leads to the clumping of particles, this instability is important in the early stages of planet formation.
