Radial diffusion flux due to electrostatic ballooning modes is estimated by taking into account the lowest order toroidal effects and by assuming the saturation of the instabilities by a random frequency modulation due to E×B fluid motion. The result gives a quantitative agreement with the experimentally observed diffusion flux.
