Nonlinear excitation of magnetostatic fluctuations by kinetic drift-Alfvén waves

We show that, for typical tokamak parameters, superthertaal magnetostatic convective-cell fluctuations can be nonlinearly excited by a moderate level of kinetic drlft-Alfven turbulence (e.g., 6n/n ~ i %). Effects on the plasma cross-field transport and the nonlinear evolution of drlft-Alfven turbulence are also briefly discussed.
