    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    The existence and dynamics of vortical structures in both homogeneous and inhomogeneous systems will be discussed. In particular the dynamics of monopolar and dipolar vortices in a plasma with nonuniform density and in a rotating fluid with varying Coriolis force is described. The role of vortical structures in connection with electrostatic plasma turbulence and the associated cross-field plasma transport will also be addressed.
