Title: Antarctic solar terrestrial and geophysical studies from geomagnetic and GPS data
Description:
Abstract:
In English: This dataset contains information on monitoring the geomagnetic field. The aim of this and the previous campaign is a qualitative jump in the magnetic observatory operation as it receives hourly data transmissions from Meteosat satellite which is registered by the station in Edinburgh, the central office of magnetic data collection, and then later transmitted to the Ebre Observatory by electronic mail. The data transmissions started during the 1999-2000 campaign, have been working even during the last two southern winters. The novelty of the project in this campaign is the use of another equipment of the station, the differential GPS, to study the content of electrons in the ionosphere. This data together with the study of external magnetic disturbances contained in the Observatory registers can give some idea of the space weather situation. En Espanol: Esta ficha contiene informacion sobre la monitorizacion del campo geomagnetico. El objetivo de la anterior campana y tambien de esta supone un salto cualitativo en el funcionamiento del observatorio magnetico, ya que se ha conseguido la transmision horaria, via satelite Meteosat, de los datos registrados por la estacion hasta Edimburgo, sede de un nodo mundial de recoleccion de datos magneticos, para su posterior transmision via correo electronico al Observatori de l'Ebre. La transmision se inicio durante la campana 1999-2000, y ha continuado en funcionamiento incluso durante los dos ultimos inviernos australes. La novedad del proyecto en esta campana es la utilizacion de otro equipo de la base, el GPS diferencial, para el estudio del contenido de electrones en la ionosfera, un dato que ligado al estudio de las perturbaciones magneticas de origen externo contenidas en los registros del Observatorio, puede dar idea de la situacion del tiempo espacial.
