The interaction of reactive pulses with a single, spatially coherent but temporally mobile heterogeneity was studied. Through computer-aided analysis, the nature of the detachment instability was examined, marking the loss of the ability of the heterogeneity to drag a pulse in 1D or 2D. Two possible paths to instability were detected.
