The mixing efficiency, flux Richardson number Rif, is investigated in a horizontally injected turbulent stratified jet with a co-existence of stable and unstable stratifications. The high resolution experimental data from a developed laser-based technique show the statistical relationship between Rif and the gradient Richardson number Rig. In addition, the data are used to study the development of entrainment by two approaches, and compared with theoretical predictions.
