The recent results on the identification of the outer most magnetic surface and on the identification of the characteristic of the zonal flow are presented by using the measured data of the zonal flow which is a plasma flow in the tokamak plasma. The positon of the outermost magnetic surface was identified using the characteristic of the oscillating zonal flow called as the geodesic acoutic mode (GAM) that the mode exists only in the closed magnetic surface, and the position of the surface was in agreement with that by the magnetic equilibrium reconstruction. Some coincidence with the drift wave - zonal flow theory was obtained by using the finding that the envelope of the density fluctuation of the background turbulence is modulated by the GAM.
