Abstract : An oceanographic flow sensor for use in component type electro-magnetic flowmeters includes a pair of spaced electrodes and a conductive coil wound there-about having a small enclosed area. A sensor construction is also disclosed having a plurality of mutually perpendicular coils. A preferred embodiment uses a conductive coil wound along a bent winding axis such that mutually perpendicular sensing electrodes may use the electromagnetically generated field from a single winding.
