Wave-number spectrum of dissipative drift waves and a transition scale.


We study the steady state spectrum of the Hasegawa-Wakatani (HW) equations that describe drift wave turbulence. Beyond a critical scale k_{c}, which appears as a balance between the nonlinear time and the parallel conduction time, the adiabatic electron response breaks down nonlinearly and an internal energy density spectrum of the form F(k_{⊥})∝k_{⊥}^{-3… (More)
