<p><strong>Abstract.</strong> Fluid parcels can exchange water properties when coming into contact with each other, leading to mixing. The trajectory encounter mass and a related simplified quantity, the encounter volume, are introduced as a measure of the mixing potential of a flow. The encounter volume quantifies the volume of fluid that passes close to a reference trajectory over a finite time interval. Regions characterized by a low encounter volume, such as the cores of coherent eddies,doi:10.5194/npg-24-189-2017 fatcat:57jl4z6llreujg67kiuf4dsep4
