The main characteristics of the edge plasma in TEXTOR, with ohmic heating only, are summarised with special emphasis on plasma composition and the effects of impurities. For one set of operating conditions radial profiles of the important plasma parameters are presented and, in particular, radiation losses and impurity transport are discussed. The case of a detached plasma, where energy removal to the limiter approaches zero, is also presented. Results of the studies on carbon sputtering due to plasma limiter interaction are reported.
