A problem of thermal instability of a compressible micropolar fluid layer heated from below in the presence of suspended particles has been investigated. Dispersion relation is derived and Rayleigh number curve is then plotted against the wavenumber at different values of compressibility parameter for a model example. Compressibility is found to be responsible to destabilize the system in the presence and absence of suspended particles for both stationary and over stationary convection.
