We prove that a broad class of PDE’s including the reaction-diffusion and 2D Navier–Stokes equations have observable measures. Moreover, these measures form the minimal weak* compact subset of Borel probability measures whose basins of attraction has total Gaussian measure. To prove these results we extend the theory of observable measures [8] from continuous maps on compact manifolds to dissipative semiflows on Polish spaces.
