In this paper we study the influence of localized or widespread nonhomogeneous temperature profiles on the stability and intensity of vertical vortices generated in a cylindrical annulus by a convective instability. Localized profiles lead to more stable vortices while widespread inhomogeneities intensify the spin motion around the inner cylinder.
