Abstract

The large variety of interesting phenomena related to the passive scalar transport in a random incompressible fluid flow were investigated both theoretically and experimentally. These effects include anomalous turbulent diffusion, intermittency, fractal structure of a concentration field. However the passive scalar transport by a compressible turbulent flow is a subject of a relatively few investigations and some interesting aspects of this problem were not addressed.
