Default Thermodiffusion or Soret effect

Hello all,

Does anyone know where to find or understand the physics behind thermodiffusion in dilute gas mixtures. I know that mass separation occurs due to a strong temperature gradient in the flow. But I also know that this effect is related to molecular pressure gradients in a mixture somehow. Is anyone knowledgeable in this area and can they point me to a good resource on information? Thanks in advance!

More detailed theoretical developments are given by:
