The present paper deals with the linear stability analysis of thermohaline convection in porous medium in the presence of a uniform vertical magnetic field and provides a classification of the neutral or unstable magnetothermohaline convection configuration of the Veronis type into two classes, namely, the bottom-heavy class and the top-heavy class, and then strikes a distinction between them by means of a characterization theorem which disallows the existence of oscillatory motions of neutral or growing amplitude in the former class whenever the thermohaline number is less than a critical value. It is further established that this result is uniformly valid for the quite general nature of the bounding surfaces. A similar characterization theorem is also proved for magnetothermohaline convection of the Stern type.
