Gyrokinetic simulation of a MAST-like equilibrium is used to establish the turbulent transport resulting from the electron temperature gradient driven mode for core and edge parameters. The thermal diffusion coefficients calculated in these simulations are found to be experimentally significant for core parameters but underestimate the observed transport on outer flux-surfaces.
