1993). The intermittency description for plasma turbuIllustrative examples. , 2003). Below, we shall provide two simple phenomenological models, which may have some relevance to the auroral zone or the solar wind (Chang, 2003). Model I. Assuming that the parallel mean magnetic field B0 is sufficiently strong and the magnetic fluctuations dominate in the transverse directions, we introduce the flux function ψ for the transverse fluctuations as follows, B = ez × ∇ψ + B0 ez (6) The coherent structures for such a system are generally flux tubes approximately aligned in the mean parallel direction (Chang, 2001).
