In this work, we analyze recent results concerning the instabilities created in a layer of liquid metal by the action of time-dependent magnetic fields. The experimental setup allows the characterization of different patterns very close to the threshold. For very low frequencies of the forcing field, the axisymmetric fluid layer destabilizes with different azimuthal wavenumbers. An improved analysis allows the characterization of different patterns for interaction parameter values as low a
