In many situations, the combined effect of advection anddiffusion enhances dissipation. I will talk about this in two contexts: The first is for a randomly shifted alternating shear flows where we show that dissipation enhancement occurs on time scale O(\ln κ), where κ is the molecular diffusivity. The second is in a discrete time setting where we show that the effective diffusivity does not vanish with the molecular diffusivity. This is joint work with SJ Son and W. Cooperman and J. Nolen.
