A series of experiments were conducted in water which was linearly stratified by the addition of prescribed amounts of sodium chloride to the layers of water that were carefully added to the towing tank. A circular cylinder with its axis horizontal, and perpendicular to the direction of motion, was tested as well as a vertical plate and a sphere. The experiments were intended to catalogue the kinds of flow that would be generated in various density gradients as the bodys Reynolds number was increased from values starting with 5.
