ISLAND

Abstract
The ISLAND module is used to compute magnetic island widths driven by saturated neoclassical tearing modes in tokamak plasmas using a quasi-linear model published in Phys. Plasmas 11 (2003) 3460--3471. Multiple magnetic islands interact with one another by means of the local flattening of the current density profile that is produced by each island, as well as interacting by harmonic mixing. The islands are treated as a three-dimensional perturbation of an axisymmetric scalar-pressure MHD equilibrium. The ISLAND module is intended to be used within integrated modeling codes to compute the effects of a small number (two or three) low-order magnetic islands.
