The results of an experimental investigation of shear instability and turbulent mixing in a stratified fluid are presented. Two parallel streams of water, moving at different velocities and having different densities salinities are produced in an open channel. Dye and shadowgraph techniques are used to visualize the flow, and quantitative measurements of velocity and density are made with hot films and conductivity probes.
