Electron density fluctuations in a weakly ionized magneto discharge system were observed. The system is a combination of a drift system and a chemical reaction-diffusion system, and supports inhomogenous flute type ionization-drift turbulence. The information dimension depends on the local condition of the inhomogeneous turbulence. It remains finite with d ∼ 14 when the temporally chaotic fluctuation partially loses its spatial coherence.
