Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A new technique was developed for the purposed of imaging high amplitude surface motion. This method can be used too quantitatively measure the transition to ripple wave turbulence. In addition, it can be utilize to measure the phase of the turbulence state. Experiments using this method reveal strong coherent structures in the turbulent range of motion.
