Physical scientists and engineers review the research on movement and mixing in bodies of fluid that have distinct layers. They cover resonances and mixing in near-integrable volume-preserving systems, fluid stirring in a tilted rotating tank, Lagrangian coherent structures, interfacial transfer from stirred laminar flows, the effects of laminar mixing on reaction fronts and patterns, and microfluidic flows of viscoelastic fluids. The material should interest scientists working on fundamental aspects of the transport problem, and engineers using recent research findings to design new microfluidic devices.
