The poloidal rotation velocity profiles both in low-confinement (L) and high-confinement (H) mode measured in JAERI Fusion Torus 2 Modified (JFT-2M) [Phys. Rev. Lett. 65, 1364 (1990)] are compared with H-mode models based on ion orbit loss. The profiles of poloidal rotation velocity measured in L and H modes are consistent with the calculation which consists of ion orbit loss model. The observed dependence of the thickness of the layer of high shear Er on poloidal gyroradius is explained by the radial transport of poloidal rotation velocity.
