[1] We show that the flux of mass crossing in one direction (the ‘‘gross’’ flux) through any specified surface S that divides anadvective-diffusive flow in a closed domain is infinite. That is, the flux, F (t), through S of the fluid mass that spent at least time t on one side of S diverges like t 1/2 as t ! 0, in the continuum limit. The gross flux is completely dominated by fluid elements residing infinitesimally short times on one side of S before re-crossing to the other side. This general… CONTINUE READING
