in this paper, we present kinetic simulation results of plasma parallel transport in the stationary and ELMy scrape-off (SOL) layer. We demonstrate that number of kinetic factors describing SOL are strongly nonuniform and evolve during the ELM. Power loads to the divertor obtained from the ELMy SOL simulations are in a perfect agreement with the experimental measurements at JET. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
