Description: Studies of local multispecies thermal particle and energy transport in L-mode and supershot deuterium plasmas have been performed on the Tokamak Fusion Test Reactor (TFTR). These studies were undertaken to help gain insight into the anomalous transport properties of the bulk plasma. Such experimental and theoretical studies are valuable for ITER: the relationship of local helium ash and metallic particle transport to local energy transport will be determining factors in plasma current, helium pumping, and divertor material requirements. In addition, differences between electron and ion transport will have important implications for plasma fueling scenarios. Here, attention has been focused on supershots and L-Modes of the same toroidal field, plasma current, neutral beam heating power.
