Abstract

Four designs of single electrode conductivity probes, three of them new, were tested for response characteristics in conditions simulating laboratory internal wave flows. Two of the new designs were shown to be significantly superior in sensing vertical motion without deleterious time lags. Amplitude and phase lag, and inherent nonlinearity of response are evaluated quantitatively for all designs.
