Experimental studies on nonpremixed turbulent flames in cross flow are necessary as the current analytical and numerical tools are unable to provide acceptable quantitative information about their complex flow fields. This study, which complements the results of a previous study by the authors on the flame structure in the stabilization region of a partially lifted turbulent diffussion flame in cross-flow (TDFCF), presents the measured turbulence quantities in the flow field of the same flame. Results include mean velocities in the cross-stream and spanwise directions, the vertical and horizontal components of fluctuating components of velocity, Reynolds stress, power spectra, and autocorrelations useful for developing and validating theoretical models of TDFCF in the moderate momentum flux ratio range
