An experimental program was carried out to examine the effect of velocity on a density stratified co-flow system. Tests were performed with a layer of freshwater flowing over a layer of saltwater, with a range of velocities in each layer examined. High resolution density and velocity data was acquired using combined Laser Induced Fluorescence and Particle Image Velocimetry. These measurements were used to calculate mass transport rates, entrainment velocities, non dimensional entrainment rates and Richardson numbers. Statistical analysis was used to identify correlations in the data and identify the factors governing the behaviour of the system. The findings are discussed alongside those of previous researchers
