We have performed an experimental campaign in the laboratory on the near field behavior of inclined negatively buoyant jets, issuing from a circular sharp-edged orifice, in order to investigate the symmetry properties of this phenomenon. The velocity measurements were obtained via a non intrusive image analysis technique, namely Feature Tracking Velocimetry. We present here both first and second order statistics, showing that the asymmetry of inclined negatively buoyant jets cannot be considered only a far field feature of this phenomenon, as it arises very close to the release point.
