Advection in temporally periodic hydrodynamical flows has become one of the most appealing applications of chaos theory with an ample possibility of experimental investigations. In contrast to periodic flows, much less is known about the passive advection in temporally nonperiodic, most interestingly, chaotic flows. They are of course more general and have more potential applications including environmental ones. The aim of this minisymposium is to present concepts and approaches to describe advection in temporally chaotic flows and to characterize the degree of chaoticity of these processes, like the concept of indecomposable continua, the use of random maps, fractals, and the way to handle general time dependences.
