Abstract [en]

Appealing to an analytical result from mean-field theory, we show, using a generic galaxy model, that galactic dynamo action can be suppressed by small-scale magnetic fluctuations. This is caused by the magnetic analogue of the Radler or Omega x J effect, where rotation-induced corrections to the mean-field turbulent transport result in what we interpret to be an effective reduction of the standard a effect in the presence of small-scale magnetic fields.
