A dusty electronegative plasma containing Boltzmann electrons, Boltzmann negative ions, warm positive ions, and charge fluctuating (negatively charged) stationary dust has been considered. The basic features of the shock and solitary waves, which are associated with positive ion dynamics and dust charge fluctuation, have been investigated by employing the reductive perturbation method. It has been shown that the dust charge fluctuation is a source of dissipation, and is responsible for the formation of dust-ion-acoustic shock structures. The implications of the results (obtained from this investigation) in space and laboratory experiments have been discussed.

    Simultaneous measurements of the rates of turbulent kinetic energy (TKE) dissipation (E) and production (P) have been made over a period of 24 h at a tidally energetic site in the northern Irish Sea in water of 25-m depth. Some E profiles from ~5 m below the surface to 15 cm above the seabed...
