The dataset includes the spatial and temporal velocity information from a series of experiments of flow through emergent vegetation, using Surface PIV.

The datafiles save the velocity information, spatial coordinates, masks (vegetation) and temporal information as matrices in a series of .mat files (i.e. binary MATLAB® files that store workspace variables)
