Convective instability in the cross-field system of thermonuclear reactors can be overridden by poloidal drifts. While in crossed fields, a long-time, large-scale turbulent regime, in which the eddies of some particular size are destined to persist longer than usual, would come into being. Perhaps, we may keep such vortexes using them as tools for maintaining the stability of still an illusory construct of plasma fusion. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
