Abstract: Several open problems in the analysis of turbulent transport and mixing are described. Among these are the determination of physically relevant bounds on turbulent dissipation and eddy viscosities in a variety of flow configurations, the accurate estimation of active and passive scalar transport and effective diffusivites, and questions of effective mixing.
