Electrostatic fluctuations have been measured in a large reversed-field pinch, and are large (ne/n2040%, Te/T10%25%). Frequency and wave-number spectra are broad (n70150, m36), and differ from measured magnetic fluctuation spectra. The transport inferred from correlation measurements indicates that electrostatic fluctuations can account for significant particle losses, but contribute <15% to energy loss.
