This "absence is due to Venus’s also lacking plate tectonics for the past b.y. (1 b.y.=10 9 yr). The generation of a global magnetic field requires core convection, which in turn requires extraction of heat from the core into the overlying mantle.

Plasma is a state of matter in which an ionized gaseous substance becomes highly electrically conductive to the point that long-range electric and magnetic fields dominate the behaviour of the matter.

The plasma state can be contrasted with the other states: solid, liquid, and gas. Plasma is an electrically neutral medium of unbound positive and negative particles (i.e.

Fourier spectra of magnetic field fluctuations observed by various spacecraft in the different domains of the magnetotail at quiet or moderately disturbed times demonstrated a number of practically universal features: (1) the presence of two kinks at low (\({\sim}5\times 10^{-2}~\mathrm{Hz}\)) and high (\({\sim}5\times 10^{-1}~\mathrm{Hz Cited by: The long-standing problem of plasma diffusion across a magnetic field (B-field) is reviewed, with emphasis on low-temperature linear devices of finite length with the magnetic field aligned along an axis of these partially ionized plasmas, cross-field transport is dominated by ion–neutral collisions and can be treated simply with fluid by: Abstract.

When the amplitudes of instability waves grow, many other modes are induced by non-linear effects. The small scale modes die out by the large damping effect which results from the diffusion along the magnetic field B (See the second term of eq.

In this paper the diffusion of guiding centers induced by stochastic magnetic and electric field fluctuations, with both time and space dependence, is analyzed for the case of tokamak plasmas.

General experimental results on tokamak fluctuations are used to derive guiding‐center equations that properly describe the particle motion.

These equations assume uniform average magnetic and electric Cited by: 5. Using the quasilinear kinetic theory of transport, it is shown that, contrary to the conventional description, the particle flow from magnetic fluctuations due to local normal modes is intrinsically ambipolar on spatial average.

For both conditions, the regions outside the plasma jets have large fluctuations due to vortices, while the plasma core regions have negligibly small fluctuation because high-temperature plasmas offer much larger viscosities.
