- Scrape-off-layer (SOL) convection in fusion experiments appears to be a universal phenomenon that can ''short-circuit'' the divertor in some cases. The theory of ''blob'' transport provides a simple and robust physical paradigm for studying convective transport. This paper summarizes recent advances in the theory of blob transport and its comparison with 2D and 3D computer simulations. We also discuss the common physical basis relating radial transport of blobs, pellets, and ELMs and a new blob regime that may lead to a connection between blob transport and the density limit.
