We present a statistical analysis of defect-mediated turbulence in a kinetic model of catalytic CO oxidation on Pt(110). A probabilistic description based on the gain and loss rates of defects is derived. For low values of the CO partial pressure the statistics of topological defects agree with earlier results for the complex Ginzburg-Landau equation. For high values of the CO partial pressure, we observe an additional autocatalytic reproduction of defects that results in a linear dependence of the defect creation rate on the number of defects in the system. The role of correlations between defects of opposite topological charge was found to be weaker than in the experimental system.
