The propagation of cosmic rays can be described as a diffusive motion in most
galactic environments. High-energy gamma-rays measured by Fermi have allowed
inference of a gradient in the cosmic-ray density and spectral energy behavior
in the Milky Way, which is not predicted by models. Here, a
turbulence-dependent diffusion model is used to probe different types of
cosmic-ray diffusion tensors. Crucially, it is demonstrated that the observed
gradients can be explained through turbulence-dependent energy-scaling of the
diffusion tensor.
