Abstract

We briefly discuss the unified theoretical framework that allows explaining a variety of experimental observations with one single "fishbone-like" dispersion relation. We also point out the relationship of MHD and shear Alfv�n waves in the kinetic thermal ion frequency gap with microturbulence, Zonal Flows and Geodesic Acoustic Modes, emphasizing its importance in determining long time scale dynamic behaviors in burning plasmas.
