Gyro-Bohm scaling of ion thermal transport from global numerical simulations of ion-temperature-gradient-driven turbulence
The ion gyro-radius scaling of ion thermal transport caused by ion-temperature-gradient-driven (ITG) turbulence is studied with a global fluid simulation code in three-dimensional toroidal geometry. It is found that the effective conductivity scales like the ion gyro-radius (gyro-Bohm scaling).
