Description: The dynamics of an isolated plasma filament (an isolated blob) in the far scrape-off layer (SOL) of a toroidal device is described, with a proper averaging of the geometrical parameters as well as plasma parameters along the filament. The analysis is limited to the magnetohydrodynamic description. The effects of the anchored ends and finite plasma resistivity are also discussed.
