In this work, a specific experimental protocol is developed to study the bubble sweep-down phenomenon on oceanographic research vessel. The combination of the utilization of a wave and current flume tank and an hexapod allows the simulation of conditions under which the phenomenon can be observed at full scale. Visualizations and PIV measurement results both obtained in the bow vicinity of the Ifremer oceanographic vessel Pourquoi pas? are presented in this paper.
