A new technique is studied for the simultaneous, independent and continuous measurement of the temperature, salinity and velocity at a point in a flowing water solution by means of electrical measurements of the electrolytic conductivity and dielectric constant of the medium. The instrumentation is capable of high sensitivity and rapid response, limited only by the physical size of the probe, and small sensors are relatively easy to construct in a simple and durable configuration. The methods are applied to measurements in sea water and tap water.
