We present recent results on time-scales separation in fluid
mechanics. The fundamental mechanism to detect in a precise
quantitative manner is commonly referred to as fluid mixing. Its
interaction with advection, diffusion and nonlocal effects produces a
variety of time-scales which explain many experimental and numerical
results related to hydrodynamic stability and turbulence theory.
