Abstract

Prior to ELMs in TCV coherent magnetic oscillations, that indicate a rapidly growing magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) instability, have been observed. The structure of these precursor oscillation is investigated with TCV's Mirnov probe arrays. In particular an observed toroidal asymmetry in the growth of the instability has to be explained.
