To be specific, we consider a simple model of density fluctuations in thin slabs or sheets parallel to the plane of the sky, which are separated along the line of sight direction by distances much larger than their depth.

The ratio of the Doppler shift to the gas flow velocity of δV/V ∗ ≈ 0.7 results both from the small optical thickness of the shock wave in line frequencies and the anisotropy of the radiation field typical for the slab geometry.

This is in stark contrast to previous models, which are restricted to slab geometry and the field line random walk limit.
Quasilinear Drift Of Cosmic Rays In Weak Turbulent Electromagnetic Fields
Matthaeus (1997) assume slab turbulence geometry and argue that nonresonant field line random walk (FLRW) is the ma jor agent for the decorrelation of particle tra jectories.
Quasilinear Drift Of Cosmic Rays In Weak Turbulent Electromagnetic Fields
Other models are based on the field line random walk (FLRW) limit emerging, for slab turbulence geometry, from quasilinear theory (QLT; Jokipii 1966; Jokipii & Parker 1969), which has been considered and used in subsequent studies (e.g., Forman et al. 1974; Forman 1977; Bieber & Matthaeus 1997).

It is formally the same as those derived by Forman et al. (1974) for field line random walk in a slab geometry and, more recently, by Bieber & Matthaeus (1997).

This latter balances the heating of the gas due to the primary and diffuse radiations reaching the slab, and the cooling, due to recombinations and collisional excitation of the ions followed by line emission, dust collisional ionization, and thermal bremsstrahlung.
