A semi-analytical method for the study of eddy transport in presented. It determines the statistics of particle trajectories using the decorrelation trajectories, which are determined from the Eulerian correlation of the velocity. The fraction of free trajectories that effectivy determines the transport decreases with the increase of the Kubo number. The statistical method is able to describe the transport in these conditions where it is produced by a minority of the events. The effect of particle collisions is analysed. We show that eddy diffusion is strongly amplified by weak collisions and that the effective diffusion coefficient can be much larger than both the collisional diffusion coefficient and the eddy diffusion coefficients.
