Abstract: The nontrivial dependence of the asymptotic diffusion on noise intensity has been studied for a Hamiltonian flow mimicking the Gulf Jet Stream. Three different diffusion regimes have been observed depending on the noise intensity. For intermediate noise the asymptotic diffusion decreases with noise intensity at a rate which is linearly dependent to the flow's meander amplitude. Increasing the noise the fluid transport passes through a superdiffusive regime and finally becomes diffusive again at large noise intensities. The presence of inner circulation regimes in the flow has been found to be determinant to explain the observed behavior.
