Turbulence with an associated turbulent magnetic field is common in astrophysical environments. The determination of the transport of charged particles both parallel and perpendicular to the mean magnetic field is of considerable interest. Quasi-linear analysis or direct numerical simulation can be used to find the effects of the turbulent magnetic field on the transport of charged particles. A number of different magnetic turbulence models have been proposed in the last several decades. We present the results of studying particle transport in synthesized, anisotropic (Goldreich & Sridhar, 1995) turbulence and compare the results with those obtained using the standard isotropic turbulence model.
