Abstract : A technique of flow visualization which produces the equivalence of smoke lines in water is presented. The method consists of a fluorescent dye material, acting as a marker fluid, which is selectively responsive to ultraviolet light of a single wavelength. Under proper illumination, the dye provides a highly visible marker fluid, well-suited to conventional photography. Under normal lighting conditions, the dye is colorless and optically non-contaminating. (Author)
