I will describe an ongoing project, motivated by ocean gyres, to study rates of mixing in environmental dynamical systems. Given a forced dynamical system, we look for eigenmodes, which turn out to be closely related to obstructions to mixing. (Joint work with Gary Froyland, Cecilia González-Tokman and Simon Lloyd).
