PhD data

Each named entry contains an introductory page, giving a brief overview of its contents, together with numerous data pages listed by an experiment number. These numerical listings are in text format, best opened with WordPad or any similar package. Each experiment number used by the named researcher is coded to identify it within a series or group, and is the same as that used in their PhD thesis or published papers, thus making it easy to track information.

The data for each experiment has then been laid out in sections, with explanatory symbols and words, formatted in a fairly consistent and similar way between researchers. This is intended to make it easier to search for information once each individual system is understood. A summary sheet is also provided, containing an error assessment, and key processed results. In some cases, the data has been processed even further so that other results are available, such as lateral distributions of depth-averaged velocity and boundary shear stresses. The files have codes and ending formats that indicate their type. Table 1 summarises these data.
