The applicability of an integral formula for the dividing-streamline height in strongly stable flow over hills is tested in several laboratory experiments. The dividing-streamline concept is based upon simple energy arguments; fluid parcels originating far upstream of a hill at elevations H sub R above the dividing-streamline height H sub s will have sufficient kinetic energy to rise over the top, whereas those below H sub s must pass around the sides.
