The last several years have seen numerous advances in the understanding of the coherent motions that exist in turbulent shear flows. These studies have provided the underlying basis of most of the experimental investigations of coherent motions using conditional sampling, quadrant splitting, pattern recognition, etc. Lacking, however, in the visual work is a true three- dimensional view of the processes, which are known to be three-dimensional in nature. Possible means of providing information about the third dimension are reviewed. Details of an evaluation of a stereoscopic-photographic, high-speed motion picture system are given. The system utilizes the boundary layer flow channel previously developed in our work by Nychas, Hershey and Brodkey (J. Fluid Mech. (1973) 6l, 513).
