A Question about Lagrangian Coherent Structures (LCS)

    Has somebody a paper, text, (whatever), which explains the Lagrangian Coherent Structures ? I want an explanation by words and not all the mathematical stuff. All I can find about LCS is
    1. They organize flow
    2. you can detect them with the Lyapunov exponents.

    But I want to understand what LCS are and why people care about them.
    I hope that somebody can help me.
    best wishes

    PS: I have no clue if this is the right part of the forum to ask this question.
