Mean vertical velocities (of both individual larvae and local flow) used to construct distributions of observed larval velocity, local flow velocity, and larval swimming velocities, as described in Wheeler et al. 2013. Velocities are recorded in three forcing regimes, 0 Hz, 0.75 Hz, and 1.75 Hz. PIV recordings by Wheeler in Summer 2012.
