The evolution of the large-scale density structure in a turbulent boundary layer at Mach 2.9 was studied using double-pulsed Rayleigh scattering. Pairs of images of the instantaneous density field ware obtained with time delays ranging from 12 μsec to 60 μsec, and they were used to determine qualitatively the changes in the structures as they move downstream. Instantaneous convection velocities were also measured.
