Spanwise cross-correlation measurements are reported for the naturally occurring TS waves on a flat plate at a free-stream velocity of 20 m/s. Three cases, namely, zero, mild adverse and mild favourable streamwise pressure gradients are covered. Results indicate the spanwise coherence length scale of the waves to be around five times its wave length for zero pressure gradient. Marginal increase and a decrease in length scale is observed for adverse and favourable pressure gradients, respectively.
