Bibliographic Code:


Two-dimensional numerical simulations with high spatial resolution are used to study the effects of a large-scale magnetic field on its turbulent transport. It is commonly believed that the nonlinear back-reaction of the magnetic field on the turbulence becomes important when the field strength is close to equipartition. However, turbulent diffusion is effectively reduced even when the large-scale field is much weaker than equipartition.
