Jet-paddling jellies: swimming performance in the Rhizostomeae jellyfish Catostylus mosaicus (Quoy and Gaimard, 1824) - videos

Dataset description

These data relate to an investigation into the wake structure and propulsive efficiency in the blue-blubber jellyfish Catostylus mosaicus. We show that these jellyfish have a relatively high propulsive efficiency compared to other swimmers, which they achieve by manipulating the water around them with their flexible bodies.

Keywords: medusa, fluid dynamics, wake structure, vorticity, Cnidaria, Scyphozoa
