Preliminary measurements of the effects of increasing Mach number on the structure of turbulent boundary layers are presented. The data were obtained using a Mach 2.5 pilot tunnel facility and a new Mach 8 boundary layer facility. The principal diagnostic technique was planar Rayleigh scattering. The results shed some light on the effects of Mach and Reynolds number on outer layer intermittency.
