Single-point, jet-fluid concentration measurements obtained from high Schmidt number (Sc ≃ 1.9 x 10^3) turbulent jets permit an investigation of temporal scalar power spectra, for jet Reynolds numbers in the range of 1.25 ≤ Re x 10^(-4)≤ 7.2. At intermediate scales, we find a spectrum with a logarithmic derivative (slope) that is increasing with Reynolds number, in absolute value, but less than 5/3 at the highest Reynolds number in our experiments. At the smallest scales, our spectra exhibit no k^(-1) power-law behavior, possessing a log-normal region over a range of scales exceeding a factor of 40, in some cases.
