A wind tunnel was designed to investigate the effects of density stratification on fluid motions appearing in the atmosphere. By filling the tunnel with a different density mixture of air and a heavy gas, we can easily create stratified flows with the desired density profiles in a short time. A wide range of the density gradient can be generated, therefore, the experiments at low Froude numbers and at relatively high Reynolds numbers can be performed.
