Finite size and inertia effects may strongly modify the advection dynamics, in particular in the bubble regime. The escaping process becomes slower, attractors may appear, and if so, fractal boundaries are created between the basins of attractions. The attractors can be formed from both marginally stable tori and purely hyperbolic, unstable trajectories of the passive advection's Hamiltonian dynamics.
