Abstract

Samples of excess density difference have been obtained such that all of the scales of the flow could be resolved. Power spectra have been constructed from the time series, as well as various turbulent quantities. Simultaneous Reynolds flux and Reynolds stress measurements have also been made using both the conductivity probe and an ADV. Though measurements have been limited by the sampling frequency and volume of the ADV, they are useful for obtaining reasonable mixing efficiencies.
