Experimental data of a turbulent boundary layer developing over a flat plate, obtained by Digital Particle Image Velocimetry (DPIV) technique, are analyzed making use of proper orthogonal decomposition (POD). Different POD definitions have been used in order to check their ability in educing the various structures dominating the near wall region. Results show a specific sensitivity depending on the POD definition adopted.
