Resistive tearing modes and MARFEs are the most common precursors to a forthcoming disruption in the tokamak experiment TEXTOR. This paper shows how tearing modes can break up the confinement and lead to a highly turbulent plasma state and how MARFEs deteriorate the plasma confinement from the edge and finally terminate the discharge by a sudden release of stored plasma from the boundary space.
