Abstract

The temporal dependence of the perpendicular transport coefficient of charged particles in magnetostatic turbulence is studied for times smaller than the time needed to charged particles to travel the turbulence correlation length. This time window is left unexplored in most transport models. In our analysis all magnetic scales are taken to be much larger than the particle gyroradius, so that perpendicular transport is assumed to be dominated by the guiding center motion. Particle drift from the local magnetic field lines and magnetic field lines random walk are evaluated separately for slab and 3D isotropic turbulence. Contributions of wavelength scales shorter and longer than the turbulence coherence length are compared. In contrast to slab case, particles in 3D isotropic turbulence unexpectedly diffuse from local magnetic field lines; this result questions the common assumption that particle magnetization is independent on turbulence geometry. These results may have significant impact on turbulence in supernova remnant blast waves and interplanetary shocks.
