  • A new topological analysis of the plasma flow structures is presented for some pressure-gradient-driven turbulence results. The analysis is done by separating the structures into radial layers and studying each layer separately. This allows for the identification of flow cycles and flow filaments and the determination of the life of the cycles and length of the filaments.
