A luminescent imaging is introduced for measuring environmental flows. By using the light emission from a luminescent molecular probe, spatiotemporal information of a fluid flow can be captured. The presentation focuses on the fundamental principle of the luminescent imaging and its features for an environmental flow measurement. Some examples in the flow measurement are also given.
