The dynamics of foam drainage (free, forced and pulsed) is monitored by the determination of local liquid density using a vertical array of capacitors. Liquid profiles are obtained for various drainage experiments. The merging of two solitary waves is in good agreement with theoretical predictions. Such capacitance measurements offer a convenient practical technique for characterising the more general properties of non-conducting foams.
