Abstract. In this paper, the author investigates the impact of external sources on the pattern formation and long-time behavior of concentration profiles of passive tracers in a two-dimensional shear flow. It is shown that a time-periodic concentration profile exists for time-periodic external source, while for random source, the distribution functions of all concentration profiles weakly converge to a unique invariant measure (like a stationary state in deterministic systems) as time goes to infinity.
