In this paper we provide a detailed description of the interaction of solutal convection and morphological instability in the presence of a model boundary-layer flow. We present a detailed investigation of the structure of the marginal surfaces in Rayleigh-number, Sekerka-number, Reynolds-number space associated with a linear stability analysis. We give mathematical arguments and physical mechanisms to explain the results and present a coherent description of this complicated situation. We identify two new modes, one convective and one morphological. We show that the oscillatory so-called 'mixed' modes that result from the coupling of morphological and convective modes play a central role in the unfolding of the solution structure by the shear flow. This flow has the effect of decoupling the convective and morphological modes.
