Abstract

The electrostatic and density fluctuation are measured simultaneously with a heavy ion beam probe. The electrostatic fluctuation with the geodesic acoustic mode (GAM) frequency is observed in L-mode plasmas and not in H-mode plasmas. The poloidal and radial structure is consistent with the GAM. So the fluctuation is concluded to be the GAM. The amplitude of the GAM changes in the radial direction; it is small near the separatrix, has a maximum at 3 cm inside the separatrix and decreases again to 5 cm inside the separatrix. The GAM and the temporal behaviour of the ambient density fluctuation show a significant coherence, and the phase of modulation of the ambient density fluctuation tends to delay the potential oscillation of the GAM. It is clearly verified that the GAM affects ambient fluctuation and also the local particle transport through modulation of the amplitude of the ambient fluctuation.
