Physics of Zonal Flows in Drift Wave Turbulence

Abstract

The interaction between sheared ExB ows and drift wave turbulence is investigated numerically with both two-and three-dimensional models. Drift wave physics diiers from other systems due to the strong dissi-pative coupling between ExB eddies and transported quantities, and so does its coupling to background ows. Zonal ow generation is an energy transfer… (More)
