Observations of ULF space plasma waves in Antarctica
Entry ID: ASAC_606

Abstract: This project records ultra-low frequency (ULF) waves in the 1mHz - 3Hz band at the Antarctic stations Davis, Casey, Mawson, and Macquarie Island and Zhongshan (PRC station). Search coil magnetometers are employed with identical instrumentation at all stations. Over the southern summers of 2002-2005 two additional remote magnetometers were deployed poleward of Davis and Zhongshan, forming a square ... View entire text
