Vertical Electric Field data from Concordia Station - 2009 - 2012
Entry ID: ASAC_974_Concordia

Abstract: Vertical Electric field measurements captured at Concordia Station. The files are stored in XML format, and contain detailed headings describing the data layout and format. The data are collected by a rotating electric field mill mounted on an all metal mast. The EFM is ~3m off the ground.

The vertical electric field measurements collected at the French (IPEV) and Italian (PNRA) station at ... View entire text

Quality The data are calibrated only against a set of parallel plates mounted in a Faraday box which was placed over the electric field mill. This means that no account has been taken of the compression of the electric field by the metal support. The data should be viewed as relative values. Unlike Vostok, where the EFM is calibrated each month, we were satisfied that the new EFM MarkIII was broadly ... View entire text
