A high framing rate particle image velocimetry (HFR-PIV) study (3000 Hz) was carried out on the vortex ring shed from a water drop impinging on a pool of water to provide velocity and vorticity data. The impact conditions were We=ll and F/=13. The maximum velocity measured in the vortex core was 0.45 m/s. The propagation velocity and vortex diameter were measured to be 0.18 m/s and 2.4 mm respectively. The HFR-PIV also showed the presence of two counter rotating vortices (or vortex ring) travelling parallel to the free surface moments after impact confirming a theoretical prediction by Peck and Sigurdson [11]. Visual observation of this vortex ring travelling along the free surface is difficult as it usually contains insufficient dye to be identified.
