Thermal instabilities in drift wave turbulence
Journal article, 2015

The difference between simple drift waves driven by the density gradient and thermal instabilities driven by the temperature gradient is discussed. It is shown that thermal instabilities basically are of a kinetic nature although they can also be accurately described by an advanced fluid model.
