Abstract. Non-equilibrium quasi-stationary states resulting from curvature driven interchange instabilities and driftwave instabilities in a low beta, weakly ionized, magnetized plasma are investigated in the context of laboratory experiments in a toroidal configuration. Analytic modelling, numerical simulations and experimental results are discussed with emphasis on identifying the unstable modes and understanding the physics of anomalous particle and energy fluxes and their linkage to self-organized pressure profiles.
