Abstract

We propose a new mechanism for turbulent transport in systems which support radiating nonlinear solitary wave packets or pulses. The direct energy cascade is provided by adiabatically evolving pulses, whose widths and carrier wavelengths decrease. The inverse cascade is due to the excitation of radiation. The spectrum is steeper than the Kolmogorov-Zakharov spectrum of wave turbulence.
