In this paper, the flow field between two straight groynes in shallow wide open channel has been measured using Particle Image Velocimetry method. Groynes with 25cm length, 5cm width and 7cm height with two aspect ratios of 1 and 2 have been located in the fully developed zone of a 18m length flume and velocity measurements carried out in order to study the circulating flow, structure of the mixing layer and downstream separation zone. Image processing is conducted using GPIV software and Westerweel and Brevis methods are used for filtering of the measured velocity fields. Results are presented in form of time averaged values, turbulence intensities and Reynolds stresses at various zones of the groyne field. Results showed that due to the flow shallowness, most of the turbulent structures are two dimensional. Development of a back flow from downstream zone to the groyne field enhances the complexity of the mixing layer and mas exchange phenomenon compared to the groyne series configuration.
