Heat- and mass transfer processes in a two-layer system of the liquid and gas are studied with respect to evaporation at interface. The stationary convective flows of two immiscible viscous incompressible fluids filling an infinite channel and being under action of the transverse gravitation field are studied analytically. Mathematical modeling of the flows is carried out with the help of the Navier-Stokes equations in Boussinesq approximation. The Dufour and Soret effects are taken into consideration in the gas-vapor phase. In the two-dimensional case the exact solutions of special type are constructed under condition of a given specific gas flow rate. Comparison of the analytical results with results of the physical experiments with the "liquid-gas" system like "ethanol-air" are presented.
