Abstract.  It has been found that gyro-fluid resonances strongly reduce particle pinches. This has been seen both in a parameter scan and for the JET L-mode 51034 where only a non-dissipative model is able to support the peaked experimental density profile. Extrapolations to quasilinear kinetic models are made.
