Monitoring Magnetosphere - Ionosphere Coupling, Arrival heights, Scott Base, Antarctica
Entry ID: K069_1989_2012_NZ_1

Abstract: A magnetometer and data recording system was installed and began recording hydromagnetic and ion cyclotron waves (geomagnetic pulsations) propagating into the high latitude cusp and polar cap regions of the earth's magnetic field in January 1989 at Arrival Heights, Ross Island, Antarctica. The data represent two horizontal components of the Earth magnetic field variations dB/dt. The magnetometer ... View entire text
