We developed a phase field model for Marangoni convection in compressible fluids of van der Waals type far from criticality. The theoretical description is based on the Navier-Stokes equation with extra terms responsible for describing the Marangoni effect, the classical heat equation, and the continuity equation. The model previously developed for a two-layer geometry is now extended to drops and bubbles. Finally, we report on 2D numerical simulations for drop Marangoni migration in a vertical temperature gradient.
