An experimental investigation of impinging 2d planar air jet on a water surface is performed by means of Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV). The difficulty encountered to measure the two dimensional velocity and turbulence fields close to the interface requires a special treatment of the PIV data obtained in the air and water sides. The resulting technique enables the localisation of the moving interface, the use of the inter-correlation and the calculation of statistics in both phases. The results show that the proposed PIV interface detection technique is in good agreement with the LeDaR detection technique developed at the von Karman Institute. The analysis of the air and water velocity field close to the interface highlights the topological differences between dimpling and incipient splashing configurations. The results obtained in this study will serve to model later turbulence transfer in impinging jet configuration. Keywords: turbulence, 2d impinging jet, interface, PIV – LeDaR.
