Flow over deformed bed of a meandering laboratory channel is experimentally investigated. The velocity components have been obtained using an Ultrasonic Doppler Profiler (DOP2000) that measures the instantaneous flow velocity profile along the probe direction. In this work, some results obtained in peculiar sections along the channel are reported. A refined mesh of the measurement points has been used for each considered cross-section. The analysis of the collected data essentially confirms that when the aspect ratio is small the secondary circulation assumes great importance and, in accordance with previous findings, a second counter-rotating secondary circulation cell appears near the free surface of the outer bank of the apex section. Such second circulation cell initiates at the bend entrance.
