Abstract

We describe experiments that have been conducted to investigate the velocity field in a solitary water wave. The horizontal and vertical velocity components were measured. The experimental results show that the horizontal velocity component is monotonically increasing with the distance to the wave crest line but the vertical velocity is not monotonic.
