An investigation was made of multilevel crossing rates as a means of time series analysis of random signals. Pattern recognition techniques based on the Mahalanobis distance were implemented as a means of evaluating the discriminating power of level crossings. Measurement of multilevel crossing rates was found to be an easily implementable means for detection of changes in general frequency content. Level crossing analysis was also shown to be applicable for the study of conductivity measurements of two-phase flow of air and water, where knowledge of the relationship between amplitude and frequency was beneficial in characterizing the process.
