The authors find that collective modes capable of causing resonant scattering of trapped ions can in fact be excited, under realistic conditions on the ion temperature and density gradients, in two- dimensional plasma confinement configurations. In addition, a significant asymptotic limit exists in which the influence of the excited modes on the trapped particle orbits can be evaluated analytically
